Hi jtittle,

Thanks for the information. My droplet is all sorted now.




You can power your Droplet on/off from the DigitalOcean control panel by clicking on the name of the Droplet, then Power (from the left side menu).

If your Droplet is already on and you’re not able to login, then you may have locked yourself out if you setup a firewall and SSH wasn’t allowed through (port 22). The only way to login if that appears to be the case would be through the web based console which is under Access (also on the left side menu).
