I used this command instead of exit : shutdown -h now . Now my site is offline and when I type my IP and try to connect to it , it does not work. What to do ? How can I bring the site online ? Please help.

Login to the the DO control panel https://cloud.digitalocean.com/ click the droplet you want to boot and power it on from there.
Thanks Allison. Is my IP and root password the log in details ?

The login details are for your DigitalOcean account, not the password for the VPS itself. You should see the power menu, it looks like:

Click boot.

In the future, you can use the command:


sudo reboot
