Unable to bootup droplet,
My console said “/dev/disk/by-uuid/4d444fea-ef77-44b9=9678-76a2c5e02620 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!”.
The command blkid returns ’/dev/vda1: LABEL=“DOROOT” UUID=011bb24a-5d10-42df-b584-3d47fdff51c8" TYPE=“ext4”’ as the page commanded but I’m unsure what to do with that.
My droplet is stuck on initramfs on bootup and I read a post on here that told me to request a bootable recovery ISO attached to my droplet for troubleshooting purposes, and I’ve been waiting roughly 9 hours on that.
I’ve tried booting up an older snapshot that I know worked in the past and I get the same error and it boots up to BusyBox v1.21.1 built-in-shell.
Is ANY of my data still there? How can I be sure?
