Website is down after resetting droplet root password. I don’t remember the sudo username either… What can I do?

To find out the user names run cat /etc/passwd . Try running service apache2 start or service nginx start in order to start the webserver.

I do know the sudo username… I already changed the root password, and am able to access the droplet console

Hello, @infoe7395aafd97fa222df76f7

As already mentioned you need to make sure that your web server (Apache, Nginx and etc) is running. You can always check the error logs to see what went wrong. In this way you can know where to look at in order to resolve the issue.
