Droplet Console not initiating

Hello all, I am not able to open the droplet console. At the beginning I could open it and do my work but now when I open it, the output is:

  • Waiting for console
  • Registering SSH key
  • Connecting to droplet

And then: -SSH connection lost [Console Docs or Close]

I do not understand why, if anyone could help me please.

    Hi @havardmorkhagen,

    First, make sure your Droplet is online. Open a terminal and try to ping it. If it pings that’s good, if it doesn’t try to restart it and use the recovery console:

    The recovery console should work out of the box every time.

    Additionally, try rebooting your Droplet to see if the connection to your Droplet Console is restored as well.
