Question

Website will just spin but the content wont display on my website after reboot

Hello, I recently updated a file in my server but that change did not reflect on my website so I tried once again and saved it but it still didn’t work. But the website was still fully functional at the time. So I tried t reboot my server and once the reboot was complete my website does not work now, my website will only continuously load and spin but the content on my website will not actually display now. I can’t use my website now and am in need of help ASAP!

Hello,

It sounds like that your webserver is not up and running, depending on the web service that you are using, you can check its status with:

  • For Apache:
sudo systemctl status apache2
  • For Nginx
sudo systemctl status nginx

If it is not running, you can start it with sudo systemctl start nginx or sudo systemctl start apache2 command.

If this does not help, I could suggest checking your server logs for more information:

Feel free to share the output of the logs here.

Best,
