    One of my sites was hit with a DDOS for a few hours but now its over yet I still get a 520 error on cloudflare even though I rebooted the vps and its online. Is it going to take a few hours for it to be resolved or is there something Im supposed to do on cloudflare?

    520 error can be caused due to many reasons.

    Generate an HAR file - https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/203118044-How-do-I-generate-a-HAR-file-

    And then open a support ticket with Cloudflare.

    Alternatively, check your VPS is not causing serving errors. A DDOS can trigger several issues in a server and it can have issues even when online. Check if all the services are running and nothing is failing.

    Do you have cPanel? Is chksrvd enabled? Did it trigger any emails?

    I think it may have had something to do with mysql because i get this error when i tried to start mysql
    /etc/init.d/mysql: ERROR: The partition with /var/lib/mysql is too full!

    I just reinstalled the os and restored my site to a few days ago and its working fine now, so that probably was the issue.
