You’ll need to log in through the web console to get back into your droplet.

  1. Go to https://cloud.digitalocean.com/droplets
  2. Select your droplet
  3. Click the blue “Console Access” button in the top right corner
  4. Log in

Thank Derik Olsson (DigitalOcean Support) for it.

  • To open the port 22 use next command:
    iptables -I INPUT -p tcp –dport 22 -j ACCEPT

    To flush iptables (remove all records) use:
    iptables -F
