The wiki is down due to problems in the old server snapshot that prevent it from booting up properly.
The problem lies in the corrupted cloud-init service. I’m not sure how it got broken, but this instance has been around for a few years so it most likely happened over several upgrades between buster and bullseye. The result is I had to create a new image. That’s done, but since I switched from Apache to Nginx and updated PostgreSQL to the latest version I am rebuilding the wiki from scratch. Once I get used to the new systems, I’ll restore the data from the previous wiki of which I have nightly dumps. Its just a matter of getting things in place, restoring the tables and then updataing the tables for the newest version of MediaWiki.
