DigitalOcean Control Panels

This is currently what’s showing up in my console.

Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS ubuntu-512mb-sgp1-01 tty1
ubuntu-512mb-sgp1-01 login:

When I try to input the password nothing happens same goes when I input the username first. What can I do? I still have ssh access though.

Also nothing appears when I type in the console.

When I input anything other than root, the prompt repeats itself but with garbage characters.

  • Can you try logging out of DigitalOcean’s control panel, then clearing your cache, and logging back in? Also which browser are you using?

  • I was using firefox. Tried using chrome and private browsing nothing changed.

Fixed by restarting the server.
