Question

Website down after resize

My website stops working when I resized my droplets? I already tried to remove/disable the domain but I still can’t access the IP.

Although I can access the IP via putty.

Hi, I am facing similar issue. I resized my droplet due to out of memory issues and still the website is down. I had turned off the droplet before resizing and turned back on after that. What else do I need to do? Also, I can access it via ssh.
