Hi @HappyGrayScubaDiver,

In such cases, it’s always best to connect directly to your Droplet’s web console and see the error there. It’s possible the Droplet didn’t boot properly or got stuck somewhere thus causing such issues. The Droplet will allow you to see the error and potentially fix it. Look at the link here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/how-to/connect-with-console/

If this seems like network-related or something related with the Droplet like fstab issues boot order and so on, I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean’s support, they should be able to assist as well
