How to troubleshoot your Cloud Server

This guide will show you how to diagnose errors, and find what is causing them.

You can troubleshoot errors in many ways, all depending on what error(s) you are getting.

If you are getting an error from a service, you can check its status with sudo systemctl status myservice. And you can restart it with sudo systemctl restart myservice.

Logs can be found for certain services in /var/log/. For example access NGINX logs can be found at /var/log/nginx/access.log. And errors can be found at /var/log/nginx/error.log.

If you ever find an error you don't know about, try finding other resources online that have fixes, or forums with people having the same error as you.
