PuTTY unexpectedly stopped working after Nginx installation

I’ve recently installed Nginx on my Ubuntu 16.04.2 Droplet via SSH and everything went well, until I closed PuTTY and tried to reconnect I received a “Network Error: Connection timed out” by PuTTY.

Does anyone experiencing the same issue? I have my datacenter region at London.

Hi @cstodor

Did you perhaps activate the firewall while installing Nginx?

Try to connect through Console on the control panel, then either allow SSH traffic:

sudo ufw allow 22

Or disable the firewall:

sudo ufw disable
