I’ve created a new DO droplet using the Ubuntu 22.04 image. I set a password at creation. How do I now log into the instance using the web console?
FWIW, I’ve created droplets in the past using SSH keys and then ssh’ed into the instances without issue; turn on, ssh in, done. I’ve even gone into the recovery console to mount the drive and reset the password. But on reboot, no luck using the web console. When I click to open the console, I’m presented with a new window that just says “Waiting for console” with spinning dots on the bottom that don’t stop.
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
Update: the message changed to “failed to start console session, please close this window and try again”
Update2: From reading the docs again, it seems to imply that I have to do the following:
Will try that and see if that works.
