ubuntu 16.04 X64 server
alright so I havent touched it for awhile and when I turn it back on yesterday I notice today that I cant get SSH to work. I can login to the machine itself fine. The error I get is that it is refusing connections. The SSH port is the same that I have been using and I checked that. The port is allowed through UFW.
Also its not uploading files. When I take a picture from my phone it says error uploading to server.
The only thing that I can think of is that for some reason the letsencrypt didnt automatically renew. I got that done and could access the site again using the URL. However ...its now not letting me access it. Now says again This site can’t be reached and refused to connect. I havent changed anything other than renewing the HTTPS.
So I have tried to disable UFW
tried to disable the firewall on the machine since its windows based
restart the server
Trusted domains are the same.
double checked the ports in the router
since this is hosted on virtual box I cant see all the logs completely and I cant copy them ... or I dont know how if its possible.
This is the second time now that the site has broke by not touching it .. the first time it just started working after a week or two. It seems that this is so far away from being a reliable uploading service since it literally breaks on its own.
I have no idea whats going on and no idea what to do or look at now to get this working.
alright so looks like it was up and accessible again ... I tried a picture on my phone and it went through fine .. then it went down again says it refused connection like before . so I guess the whole issue is that for some reason its going up and down
