When I access my site, I get "The connection was reset." How do I fix this?

It’s all in the question. When I access, Waterfox gives me the error “The Connection Was Reset.” When I access the website from Safari on my iPhone, I get “the server stopped responding.” How do I fix this?


Your domain setting is good and 80 port is opened as well @meganeholstein. Need more info to figure out what’s going on…

Edge gave me an HTTP 500 Error.

I know my DNS and whatnot are all good, and I powered the droplet off and on for good measure. I didn’t change anything, the website just stopped working one day.

What kind of software are you using? Nginx/Apache or others? No recent changes in conf files of those?
