Hi @38362a9b2998-4ed3-8226-86d6a8,

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:


Additionally, 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.


Lastly, do you have a Snapshot which you can restore on your Droplet?

Hope that helps! - KFSys.
