I followed this guide -
- to step 6, and then when I opened a new terminal window and tried to ssh in using the user I'd made and to whom I'd granted access, it gave me a 'Bad Port' error.
I went back in with the first terminal instance and reverted everything to its original state, but then when I tried to ssh in using either root or my new user, it gave me:
ssh: connect to host 126.96.36.199 port 22: Operation timed out
And now it also gives me:
ssh: connect to host 188.8.131.52 port 22: Connection refused
I'm also trying to access my server through the DigitalOcean control panel console and it isn't working - it says that it connects but it just comes up with a black screen.
Could you please help with this?
