Creating new droplet is taking.... FOREVER.....

  • Posted September 4, 2014

I am very new to DigitalOcean, and creating new Droplet.

I am seeing this message …for 20 mins.

“We are now creating your droplet (Approximately 60 seconds remaining)”

What is wrong?

I tried again, refreshed, but… same.

Am I missing something? I want my droplet.


I created a droplet 30 minutes ago ( location amsterdam ) and all worked fine.

Same here ;) and rebuild too?
