Website stopped working after update
We rebooted the droplet yesterday night and after that the website stopped working.
I couldn’t even log in to the droplet. Apparently the root password had changed. I was able to reset the password via the panel.
When I log in to the droplet, I see the following message (meaningful part):
Warning: Used fallback datasource
In the meantime, the site is being served by CloudFlare but we need to get the site up and running and repeated messages to Digital Ocean support have gone unanswered.
I know they ran some maintenance. I think that might have broken the droplet.
Any idea what’s going on or how to fix it?
