I am a WordPress user, and my site shows the error of “Error establishing a database connection” so I head over to the digital ocean dashboard and opened the console, I tried to paste the restart code there, but instead of doing Cntrl+V, I did Cntrl+Shift+V, and that ^C, came, and then I tried to do the Cntrl+V command to paste my restart command, but it freezes, now it is not registering any of the keyword presses or strokes, now what should I do?

See the screenshot https://prnt.sc/u7ggmk

Hi @brucerobles,

Usually, the Ctrl+Shift+V should actually do the trick. That is the proper way to paste on a terminal.

Having said that, looking at the screenshot provided, it seems like you were under really high load and it was just lagging out. It seems something was hitting your droplet very hard and thus the server had to kill processes.

There are two options here, one is to upgrade your droplet and two, is to find the source of the issue and ty to remidy it.
