restarted by droplet last night using CLI. Didn’t pay much attention, because i’ve never had too.
Today realized I hadn’t received any emails, which is that server. Couldn’t load zpanel via web browser. Finally got in it through console. Restarted again and saw an error on startup saying NetworkManager-wait-online had failed.
Powered off via shutdown command. Then started again. same failure.
ifconfig eth0 shows NO ip.
through console, journalctl -xe is almost useless because it cuts off text.
stopped network via init.d, flushed dev via ip command, started networking again. nothing.
EXCEPT NetworkManager-wait-online is now running, before the flush systemctl status said it wasn’t… but networking still won’t start.
also: my registered email address for DO is on that server. So i won’t get notifications of replies until i refresh this page. I’ll try to keep watching.
