Question

Can't ssh to my VPS

Using CentOS 7.2 x64 On Oct 31, my friend called me saying “Something happened to DigitalOcean, I had to restart my server and your teamspeak isn’t up.” I get home and check on my VPS. It shows that it’s running, try connecting to my teamspeak and my website, both down. I try connecting through PuTTY, I get a “Network error: Connection timed out”. I can only connect through the browser terminal on DO. I did a ssh server connectivity test on port 22 and it says that it can’t connect. Everything was fine before this. I’m not sure what to do.

Did you tried to ping something from Web Console so you verify that it have network connectivity?

You can try server reboot if you didn’t already:

  1. sudo reboot

Do you remember changing any settings, like enabling firewall or something other? For example, to verify ufw firewall status:

  1. sudo ufw status

If it’s enabled, you should see list of apps and make sure SSH and TeamSpeak (or their ports) are there
