Droplet down due to backup?

My droplet is down for almost an hour now and apparently a backup event is running but it seems stuck.
I can’t connect to SSH or do anything.

Is there any other way to stop this nightmare and restart my server?

Try performing a power cycle using the control panel. If you continue to have the issue, please contact support by opening a support ticket.

  • I wasn’t able to do anything. The control panel was stuck on the backup event, no SSH access either.
    DO support fixed the issue.
