OK, my guess is that you have not allowed ssh. So the only solution is to use the console from do, and login via username/password. If you don’t have a root password for the droplet, then use the reset password feature, (which will reboot the server). then login to the console NOT using ssh. Then edit your firewall. BTW, I have opted to use the DO firewall rather than the ufw on the box. I know some people use both. Using the do firewall prevents you from doing what you just did and locking your self out. Hope this helps.

Are you using a firewall? Are you letting port 22 through the firewall? Do you have a server running on that port? Need a little more information to help out. What have tried so far to try and trouble shoot the issue?
