Perpetual "Your event is processing..."

Posted February 17, 2014 6.8k views
My droplet was not responding to pings and I requested for a power cycle through the management console. However, ever since then I'm getting a perpetual "Your event is processing" page whenever I load my droplet; I'm stuck!

When I try to power off my droplet or perform any action on it via the API, I receive the following error:

status: "ERROR",
error_message: "Droplet There is already a pending event for the droplet",
message: "Droplet There is already a pending event for the droplet"
I snooped around the HTML of the page and found the event ID. Querying the API, I get the following response:

status: "OK",
event: {
action_status: "done",
droplet_id: 1164874,
event_type_id: 20,
id: 16592923,
percentage: "100"

Why am I still stuck?!
Having the same issue. Droplet on AMS2 region. Ticket #193987 has been opened. No response for now.
Please open up a support ticket if you're still experiencing this.

Same problem here now :(

I’ve got the same problem. After renaming my hostname, my droplet went into “event processing” mode. I could not any longer get into the server via Virtualmin Pro, it timed out. I could not get in via Putty either, it asked for the username and then timed out as well. However, I could get in via the Digital Ocean console, change the hostname back and reboot. That made no difference though. The droplet stayed in “event processing” mode. I then powered it off, expecting to be able to turn it back on again. However, that didn’t work out that way. It’s remained in “even processing”. I cannot switch it back on. I have posted a ticket with the helpdesk on this one but haven’t heard back as yet.
