I cannot connect (ping or ssh) to the server.

I was following this tutorial here to create a LAMP Stack: how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-20-04 I am hosting the files on a Azure VM.

This is the SSH output shown: OpenSSH_7.6p1 Ubuntu-4ubuntu0.3, OpenSSL 1.0.2n 7 Dec 2017 debug2: resolving “” port 22 debug2: ssh_connect_direct: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to [] port 22. debug1: connect to address port 22: Resource temporarily unavailable

Does anyone have a clue on what could be the issue?

The SSH service, like any service, requires system resources to operate. This means that when your Droplet is under resource-constrained conditions, the service may fail to open a working shell environment. These conditions include exhausting the system memory, reaching the system’s open file limit, or crashing the runtime environment.
