My IP address changed on me after 5 years!

I rebooted my droplet from the command line. Now after 5 years of using the same IP, my IP address has changed. I did not change it. I did not destroy it. I can connect to the new IP address, but all my data is gone. HELP.

Hi @cmmartin24,

That’s really strange! I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean’s support. They should be able to provide you with more information on the issue you are experiencing why that is.

Please do keep me in the loop if possible!
