DigitalOcean Getting Started DNS Configuration Management

It’s all in the question. When I access meganeholstein.com, 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?

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

  • 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.
