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.
