I got a notification from DO today saying my server has been causing DDoS attacks (the second time with 2 different servers)

Now we are trying to recover our database before we destroy this droplet (which has been locked by DO)

We keep getting this on console access through the DO account area

  • Indeed, the console seems fine. Did you try to press enter a couple of times? I know that the console may act weirdly if you ALT+TAB out of it to another window, and to fix it in these occasions you may press CTRL+C a couple of times or ALT+(right arrow) to switch the virtual console, then ALT+(left arrow) to return to the previous one (in case you already logged in and doesn’t want to log in again).
