Hello @largeaquamarinestarfish

Can you confirm if the resize was option was triggered from the control panel?

You can check the console for any errors and if the droplet is still not responsive you can attempt another power cycle. The last option will be reaching out to our support team as already mentioned.

Hey @largeaquamarinestarfish,

The Droplet should load quick quickly, if it keeps loading this means it’s having a hard time loading everything. You can check your Recovery Console to see what the issue is an d if it’s actually powered up.

If not, try to restart it and see if that would help.

If nothing from above works, I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean support. They should be able to take a look at the error and let you know if they can assist you.

Hope that helps! - KFSys.
