I am able to access my website but unable to ping or SSH .

I am able to access my website but am unable to ping nor am I able to SSH. I have always been able to SSH successfully until about 2 weeks back. Now I need to use to cloud console but I am unable to SSH.

I have restarted my droplet but to no avail.

I also have another droplet which I am able to SSH to successfully - so the problem is not in my local environment.

@hansen Thanks … I increased the RAM on the droplet to 4GB from 2GB, due to an unrelated reason, and now I am able to SSH !!! I have no idea why ???

@hansen I have disabled the firewall … its still not working…
