Perpetual "Your event is processing..."

  • Posted February 17, 2014

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!


I am also experiencing this at the moment . This is very disappointing , as far as it looks from here, users have been facing this issue for couple of years now and still not fixed.

Same here… Any hints what can be done?

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.

Same problem here now :(

Please open up a support ticket if you’re still experiencing this.

Having the same issue. Droplet on AMS2 region. Ticket #193987 has been opened. No response for now.

I snooped around the HTML of the page and found the event ID. Querying the API, I get the following response: <br> <br>{ <br>status: “OK”, <br>event: { <br>action_status: “done”, <br>droplet_id: 1164874, <br>event_type_id: 20, <br>id: 16592923, <br>percentage: “100” <br>} <br>} <br> <br>Why am I still stuck?!

When I try to power off my droplet or perform any action on it via the API, I receive the following error: <br> <br>{ <br>status: “ERROR”, <br>error_message: “Droplet There is already a pending event for the droplet”, <br>message: “Droplet There is already a pending event for the droplet” <br>}
