Hi, I was doing a droplet resize from one my droplets but it seems to affect the websites that are within that droplet. I have check the droplet at all content are still there but when I looked at it in a browser it only shows the “Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page”.

What could be the problem?

Hi @wtreyes,

It seems like the issue is something in your Apache Configuration files. You’ll need to make sure the vhosts are properly configured. Maybe there was an issue even before the reboot but you hadn’t restarted Apache for the changes to take effect.

Here are a couple of pointers which you can look at :

  • Make sure you actually have Vhost files for your applications
  • Make sure the DocumentRoot is the correct one
  • Make sure you have set the basic requirements

If you are unsure how to check any of the above, I’ll recommend checking these DigitalOcean tutorials -


Thanks @KDSys.

This link solved the problem for me.

That issue was that my NGINX server did not start because the port was in conflict with another Apache service that is running.

  • Oh, so you had Nginx installed as well, I see.

    I’ll recommend configuring Nginx to listen on another port so this issue doesn’t appear again.

    Glad you have solved the problem though!
