Trouble with bitnami Plone instance on AWS

I have a plone bitnami vm on aws. The bitnami control panel says plone is running and apache is running. Apache 503s whenever I try to get to the IP address the server is running on.

The Apache error log reads
[Wed Sep 21 19:49:27.373722 2022] [proxy:error] [pid 1382] (111)Connection refused: AH00957: http: attempt to connect to (*) failed
[Wed Sep 21 19:49:27.373734 2022] [proxy_http:error] [pid 1382] [client] AH01114: HTTP: failed to make connection to backend:

The github issue for the bitnami plone ticket I opened is on their github page as 503 error, issue number 342. They told me to ask plone support for feedback with the error, but I can't actually see what the error is.

If anyone has had similar issues or knows what I need to do to get this working, I'd appreciate it. I'm completely at a loss for how to begin figuring it out.

It sounds like maybe the Plone instance isn’t running. Is there a way for you to login with a command shell, and inspect the processes that are running?

Did this run correctly before?

I've been trying to muddle through this, being new to Plone and Python in general. Bitnami have repeatedly given me false information, and their httpd.conf referred to a port that wasn't in use at all.

this is the tail of zeosever.log when I restart the server

When I try to open the IP address for the server with the apache proxy listening on 8100, instead of what bitnami said to listen on, I get

2022-10-04T09:29:23 (unconnected) disconnected
2022-10-04T09:30:08 Connected server protocol
2022-10-04T09:31:08 (unconnected) disconnected

What I think I'm going to need to do is completely nuke and pave the instance though. Because with bitnami no longer supporting plone and their custom code in place, I think just starting fresh is my best choice.
