Connection issues?

How come at times I cannot connect to my server? I have a LEMP stack configured and often times throughout the day, I’ll try to connect to the site only for it not to connect. During these times I cannot access the server through putty, or FTP. The “downtimes” could last upwards of 2+ minutes some times. Is something configured improperly or is this another issue?

Same here. Experiencing it now and this is the really first time that I’m having a real issue on DO. What’s weird is that I have several VPS all in the same location (Singapore) but only my Rails VPS (created from 1-click app) is down. When I’m trying to ping it, it shows:

PING 188.166.X.X (188.166.X.X): 56 data bytes
Request timeout for icmp_seq 0
Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
Request timeout for icmp_seq 3

Request timeout for icmp_seq 5
Request timeout for icmp_seq 6
Request timeout for icmp_seq 7
Request timeout for icmp_seq 8
Request timeout for icmp_seq 9
Request timeout for icmp_seq 10

We are planning to use DO for some of our production apps and this issue is scaring the s**t out of me. Has anyone find a way to fix it and keep it that way?

I seem to have the same issue. My server seems to drop off the internet every 1-3 days. This causes e.g. all my IRC-connections to drop off simultaneously. My droplet resides in Amsterdam.

I have a related issue - i have submitted a ticket.
