Port 80 constantly shifts between Open and Closed?

Linode Staff

My website sometimes returns Connection Refused, and port 80 changes from Open to Closed and back again every few seconds. Why is this happening?

A closed port typically indicates that there are no active services listening on that port. So, you'll want to check and make sure the web server is working properly and investigate any errors you come across in the logs.

How do I understand the results of an nmap scan?
How do I check my server's log files?

Hope this helps!
