Ok I’ve really messed something up and I can’t seem to find a solution after many searches. Basically, my SSL site was working fine before I logged into SSH and saw a message saying “system reboot required”. I took a snapshot of my EC2 before doing it and proceeded with the sudo reboot command.
After about 3 minutes I was able to SSH into the server and I proceeded to make sure my sites were online. That’s when I noticed my SSL site (iowish.com) would not respond and connection was timing out. My non-SSL site with the same plugins installed works fine though.
I tried to think of what I did specific to the SSL site besides just adding the SPDY directives because going back to a basic nginx config for that site did not work. If this has anything to do with it, I did set up a crontab to run the wp-cron tasks specifically for that server and I notice that they are gone or somehow not showing up when I go to crontab -e now.
I’m basically a novice with Linux so I rely heavily on the rtCamp forums and a few others to get me where I’m at until my vision for the site pays off and I can hire someone because this is driving nuts.
Any help, suggestions or direction would be much appreciated. I can’t even remember the tail command to look at the error log for nginx that I used to use and doing a search for it on rtCamp or google is proving futile - it’s just one of those commands I ran across during an EE tutorial and it’s lost in all of the other clutter.
… and ps, I also tried an UpdraftPlus backup from a fresh wordpress install (non-ssl) and everything worked until the database was restored and it directed me to return to the Updraft management page. So, could the DB have gotten messed up after a reboot?
Thanks in advance!!
