Why can I no longer access my WordPress droplet from a browser after I migrated a theme?
I migrated a theme using the All-in-One WP Migration plugin. Everything worked, briefly. I tried to login to my new dashboard and I mistakenly using my original WP credentials instead of the ones from the new theme I was importing, about three times. Then, all of a sudden, the connection completely cuts off and it tells me my website refuses to connect. I can’t access it on any device from any browser, not even through its original IP.
I am still able to SSH to my droplet through my local machine’s terminal, as well as FTP to it. All its files are seemingly intact, and my terminal doesn’t tell me that anything weird is happening. I can ping to it and everything is seemingly ok there as well. Why can’t I access my site?
My droplet’s IP: 22.214.171.124
