Question

Droplet does not start after panel power off/on

Hi, yesterday I reset my droplet by the panel but the droplet does not start again. I found a digitalocean post suggesting to change the kernel version. It was done, but I cannot access the droplet by ssh and there is no linux services initialized. If I access my droplet by the digitalocean console I see this screen. Could you help me?

It was solved. The /bin/init has deleted. May be some problem during apt-get upgrade, I guess

In the dashboard, you can go to a kernel tab and try mounting the recovery kernel. This should allow your droplet to book into safe mode.

As for how to repair it depends on what happened which is a bit more than the scope of these questions can manage.
