Question

Why did my Wordpress site suddenly stopped working?

Hey,

I’m fairly new in setting up a server and I’m sorry in advance for not being as techinically detailed with my problem but here is the gist of my problems.

So just 4 days ago I created my droplet for my WordPress site following this tutorial. https://www.wpexplorer.com/install-wordpress-digitalocean/

It worked perfectly at first and I begin working on the site installing a theme and got some considerate work done. Then, the very next day the site was working through the domain (which is the IP address) however the wp-admin wasn’t. Then, I tried logging into the console of Digital Ocean and it asked me to enter my username and password yet again; it basically functioned like I was creating a site for the first time again. It asked me to set up my domain (again) and I chose the same IP address for domain. However, this time the site didn’t load at all giving me the error

NOT FOUND

The requested URL was not found on this server.

Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at 159.65.180.242 Port 80

I tried basically every single tutorial on YouTube with no success.

Please help I need an answer ASAP.

Hello,

Indeed as @KDSys mentioned it looks like that your /var/www/html directory does not exist.

What I could suggest is re-creating this directory with this command mkdir /var/www/html or restoring the directory from a backup.

Regards, Bobby
