My problem is that my WordPress site it down. But on that AWS server instance I have a few other sites working.

I wonder if  can literally reboot WordPress only.

Thanks.

You can't "reboot" WordPress. You will need to establish why it is down and address whatever issues you find.

From the Amazon EC2 console: select instances, select the instance that is the problem and from the details pane select status checks. Any info that may be helpful?

WordPress is a bunch of files and a database,  there is nothing to "reboot".  if its "down" i.e.  not working then there's a problem with code or the database.
if its a problem with the server try uploading a simple php file and executing that
i.e. create file called getinfo.php and put the following in it:

<? phpinfo(); ?>

Open in new window


upload it and call the file     y'know  www.yourwebsite.com/getinfo.php      it that works the server's ok.

to check the MySQL db try accessing the database with phpMysqladmin   app  (or whatever' its called).

Sounds like you may have a plugin problem. I'd you can ftp, delete the plugins one at a time to see if the problem resolves.   I hope you have a complete backup.

if you installed PHPMyAdmin on your EC2 instance you can use the elastic IP address to connect to PHPMyAdmin xxx.xxx.xx.xx/phpMyAdmin
Then check to see if the table has any errors, if so you can also try repairing the database via the PHPMyAdmin console.
