Hi @FloatingBlueKelp,

It’s possible port 22 is blocked. Usually, this happens when you activate your Firewall(ufw) and not allow port 22 for incoming connections.

What I’ll recommend is using the Recovery Console to gain access again to your Droplet and from there allow port 22 on your firewall. Here is the documentation which should help you out with the Recovery Console:

Once you are inside, you can try and use the following command to allow port 22:

sudo ufw allow ssh

This will allow access to port 22. If you however want to allow only your IP to access port 22, you can use the following instead:

sudo ufw allow from XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX to any port 22

where XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is your IP address.
