I have a basic WordPress site running on Hestia that was installed on Ubuntu 20.04 VM and was stable for long time.
It uses Cloudflare for SSL, I followed this video actually (it’s how I first found Hestia!).
Stupidly I ran
do-release-upgrade on this server to upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04. While the update completed, the Hestia control panel was no longer available.
“No matter” I thought. I destroyed the server, installed Hestia on a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 and restored a backup of my web user from the day before.
After restore, the site started responding with 502 Bad Gateway (screenshot).
What’s interesting, is if I re-save the Cloudflare Origin Server SSL certificate and key on the “Edit Web” form, the website becomes accessible. But eventually after a few hours it goes down again.
I have revoked and replaced the certificate, but this doesn’t seem to solve the issue. Any ideas?
