Wordpress Site no longer accesible after ee update to 3.6.0

I had an issue of phpmyadmin not working, so I was looking for solutions and read somewhere I should update Easy Engine (using ‘sudo ee update’).

After the process had succesfully finished, I tried visiting my wordpress multi site and noticed it was no longer loading my wordpress, but the Apache2 Unbuntu Default Page. All files and settings still seem to be in place on the server. How would I recover this so that my wordrpess site is back up?

Hi @borgulas
Can you share the output of the command sudo netstat -tnlp and sudo service nginx status ?

Hey I just noticed myself that changing the file in /etc/apache2/sites-available and change the root folder i’m able to change back to wordpress directory, but subdirectory links (of my multisite) no longer working, plus it should be working on Nginx as before the update.

The output of sudo netstat -tnlp and sudo service nginx status:

Active Internet connections (only servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0* LISTEN 7204/sshd tcp 0 0* LISTEN 7157/master tcp 0 0* LISTEN 7376/php-fpm.conf) tcp 0 0* LISTEN 7376/php-fpm.conf) tcp 0 0* LISTEN 1312/mysqld tcp 0 0* LISTEN 1392/memcached tcp6 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN 8486/apache2 tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN 7204/sshd tcp6 0 0 :::25 :::* LISTEN 7157/master

sudo service nginx status: nginx start/running

Hi @borgulas
Try following commands and confirm:

sudo service apache2 stop

sudo service nginx restart

Thanks so much :slight_smile: That fixed it. So app. Apache2 was turned on instead of Nginx after running ‘ee update’. Hope this can help someone else as well.

@borgulas Yes! EE configure and run websites on nginx only, therefore having two webservers will break your site.
