Connected by Droplet to a wireguard VPN and now I can't ssh back into it

Hello! I recently installed and configured wireguard on my Toronto-based droplet. I went to start wireguard using this command:

wg-quick up [configuration-file]

It connected successfully but my SSH connection to my droplet terminated and now I can’t connect back into my droplet using the IP provided to me. How can I both enable wireguard on my droplet while still being able to connect to it via SSH?



Did you ever figure this out? I’m trying to setup wireguard and running into the same issue… My droplet is currently a Debian 10.5 image.

Just a quick recommendation: I recommend you use Debian 10 instead of Ubuntu. Most of the commands are the same but Debian has been giving me less issues.

Note: I’m also from Toronto!
