Help needed to get access back to the server

  • Posted October 10, 2013

I accidentally used chmod for everything on server, and after which when I tried to log in again, it showed error :

Server unexpectedly closed network connection.

What can be done in this to get access to it back without re-installing a new server using backups…?

ssh is very sensitive to permissions, so it’s not going to work. <br>if it has booted up to a login prompt, you can log in via the DO out of band web console. <br>if the DO console doesn’t show a login prompt, you’ll need help from DO staff and you’ll need to submit a ticket
