I rebooted my droplet through SSH, but now I can't access the droplet now.

  • Posted July 18, 2014

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?

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

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

Hi Kamal, I have the same issue.

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

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.
