I upgraded the size of our AWS instance from micro to small because I was running into issue with the Ghost Command-Line, and now the site won’t come back.

This was the message in the error log:

Hi @ej-reef,

The Ghost service is not running. Can you try to start it?

sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start

If you get any gonit-related error, please run these other commands

sudo gonit
sudo gonit start

Happy to help!

Hi @ej-reef,

From the systemctl output, I can see all services are up and running but ghost, can you take a look at the Ghost’s log files and investigate what’s wrong with the application? For example, I found this error in the http___seeds_reefgrows_com_production.error.log file

That seems to be a problem with the application so I suggest you ask in its official forum to get more information about how to proceed.
