Question

Droplet created from personal custom image

Hello everyone! :) So I have created a droplet with Ubuntu 20, I have installed apache, mysql, php and everything I need… I made it work perfectly as I need it.

Then I decided to create a image by following this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-an-image-of-your-linux-environment-and-launch-it-on-digitalocean

And everything worked fine, I uploaded the image to spaces I used the image to create a new droplet.

New droplet is created, however I cannot reach it via IP (winSCP or browser or ping)… however I can SSH to it via DigitalOcean console…

So I guess the problem is somehow in IP not assigned properly in server configuration?

I tried searching for a solution for over 20 hours and I tried many things… with no success… :(

If anyone could help me out I would be grateful! :)

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

Late last night (attempt #84593484) :D I managed to setup the static IP and it’s working so far.

I have this in netplan

network:
    version: 2
    renderer: networkd
    ethernets:
        ens3:
            dhcp4: no
            addresses:
              - 142.93.150.177/20
            gateway4: 142.93.144.1
            nameservers:
                addresses:
                - 8.8.8.8
                - 1.1.1.1

However my other DigitalOcean generated droplets have network such as:

network:
    version: 2
    ethernets:
        eth0:
            addresses:
            - 167.99.91.233/20
            - 10.16.0.5/16
            gateway4: 167.99.80.1
            match:
                macaddress: 2a:e6:19:8a:a1:1f
            nameservers:
                addresses:
                - 67.207.67.2
                - 67.207.67.3
                search: []
            set-name: eth0
        eth1:
            addresses:
            - 10.106.0.2/20
            match:
                macaddress: 9a:98:f8:9a:8d:da
            nameservers:
                addresses:
                - 67.207.67.2
                - 67.207.67.3
                search: []
            set-name: eth1

So in network I have manually generated I’m missing eth1 and the nameservers are public ones, is that bad or that configuration is ok? The missing ethernet port is also ok or?

Hi, Check if you can see your droplet’s public IP address assigned to any network interface

sudo ip address

and what is a gateway (via) and network interface (dev) for default routing

sudo ip route

Check if you can ping the gateway from outside and inside your droplet.
