Yesterday I ran

sudo reboot now

through SSH to my droplet which runs ubuntu 14.04. Connection closed then, now I can’t SSH anymore. It says

ssh: connect to host  ***.***.***.*** port 22: Connection refused.

How to solve it?

Log in to the Remote Console, is it still running or is it powered off?

You can also try power cycling it via the control panel which should force it to reboot.

Hi Kamal, I have the same issue.

I’m checking the Droplet via the user interface but it seems to be Active and running.

I executed a Power Cycle through the UI and it worked.

I try Power Cycle but it not work for me. Please help me how to make it run. Thanks!
