Apache not running after hardware migration

It appears that apache2 is not running after the our VPS was migrated to new hardware this morning.

“top” is showing zero instances of apache, and no one can connect to our sites for the last 6 - 8 hours. I have filed numerous help requests and have not had any answers.

We have access via the shell, I am assuming that means the migration is complete and the server is up and running.

Any advice on how to check if apache is up, or installed, or how to start it would be much appreciated.


I’m sure apache is installed on all machines. DH is a web hosting company. It is too shame to miss that.

Have you received an email saying the migration is completed? If not, maybe your server is not ready yet.

This is to do with infrastructure and we can’t help much. Hope DH support will get back to you soon and problem will be solved.

You can keep up-to-date with the progress of this restore by checking the announcement in your panel. :slight_smile: We’re still looking into your services specifically, and you should be hearing from one of our lovely Tech Support team members soon. Thanks for your patience!

Update: We just emailed you! Please reply there directly with any questions/concerns you might have. Again, we appreciate your patience during this downtime. :slight_smile:

Well… things ran for about a day :frowning:
And now the server is completely unresponsive. Will not even return a ping. DH says "This is an update to let you know that the restore continues to remain stable on your server, and your sites should be loading as expected."
