Hi i'm getting this error when trying to access the website after a restart.

This site can’t be reached
refused to connect.

ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Any idea how to fix this? I also created a support ticket (7528777) some hours ago but this is urgent. Thank you.

Thanks to Ryan B. For solving the issue for me.
The problem was and i quote Ryan "It seems you had set the non-SSL apache port to 8080 instead of the default port, 80."
He set it back to 80 making the site live again. Thanks so much Ryan! I don't know why my hosting does this to me. As if i didn't pay them enough! oh dear! Thanks!

Hello :)

I'm happy to see the issue is now resolved. It's possible this happened due to leftover configuration changes stemming from a previous plugin installation (e.g. Varnish).

Thank you.
