Wordpress site experiencing ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
I have a 1 click install of Wordpress on Ubuntu 16.04 that is now experiencing ERRCONNECTIONREFUSED when accessing the site via IP address. This occurred after logging into the wordpress admin account from two separate computers at the same time (different physical locations, different IP addresses). The error is happening at only one of these location’s wifi network. The site loads fine elsewhere - I even tested with my phone on a data connection with success, but as soon as I connect to the wifi here, the page will stop loading and shows the error.
What I did to try to fix:
I cleared cookies in browser. This didn’t help.
I then reset the Authentication Keys and Salts in the wp-config.php file. This didn’t help either.
I’m not sure how to proceed and my searches haven’t been helpful yet. What’s going on, and how can I regain access?
