Hello,

What I could suggest is following the steps here on how to regain SSH access to your server:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/resources/lost-ssh-key/

Once you have SSH access, you can follow the steps here on how to install an SSL certificate so that the site could be accessible via HTTPS:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-20-04

Regarding the Ubuntu GUI, I could suggest removing that service from the server in case that you are not using it.

Hope that this helps!

Regards,

Bobby
