Question

Website is down after backup, can't figure out what's wrong.

I’ve been having a lot of issues with my droplet, i have a wordpress install and it had been running incredibly slow all of the sudden (last 1-2 days), i thought it could have been cloudfare so i took it down. Doing that made me unable to access the site, and after a lot of time trying to fix it i ended up doing a restore to a backup made 17 hours ago, i thought that would fix the issue, but now i can’t access my site at all, not even when i try visiting the IP.

I already went over all the config files, even reinstalled apache, but nothing seems to work.

Edit: The site is www.vicariuscollective.com, my current IPV4 is 157.245.219.201

Hello,

So looking at your current site, it looks like apache is not loading PHP. If you look the PHP files are getting returned as raw files. This is a mega issue as anyone can locate your WordPress config file and view its data, you will need to rotate everything once you get back online.

I think when you reinstalled apache you did not add php model in. Something like

apt-get install libapache2-mod-php7.0
