I have a problem with my Droplet, which I believe I caused myself and can’t get out of it. Basically I’m unable to ssh into the droplet (18.04, failed upgrade to 20.04), and can’t access outside internet from it. Below are the things I tried so far (apart from fully turning off and rebooting the droplet numerous times):
ssh into the server results in:
ssh: connect to host 220.127.116.11 port 22: Connection timed out
From the droplet:
$ ping google.com ping: google.com: Temporary failure in name resolution
[Resolve] DNS=18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 FallbackDns=126.96.36.199
$ ufw status ERROR: Couldn't determine iptables version
$ ifconfig -a lists eth0 and lo, both running
$ cat /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* auth eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.240.0 gateway 184.108.40.206 dns-nameservers 220.127.116.11
… and probably bunch of other things which I will mention when I recall all of them… Also I don’t care about fully resurrecting the droplet, I need to make some data backup and destroy it. For that though I need outside access, besides the “Access console”.
What am I missing?
