So, my Ubuntu server's hard drive went into emergency read-only mode while I was in an SSH session. Thankfully, I was able to connect with SFTP and grabbed a few critical files, although, stupidly, it didn't occur to me at the time to download all my other projects. I then restarted the server through SSH, hoping it would automatically repair any disk errors and boot normally.
It didn't, so now I cannot connect to SSH. I'm assuming it is sitting in recovery console. Does recovery console have any emergency remote services enabled by default? Like telnet on a really high port number or something? I won't have physical access to the machine for another few months, so I don't know what to do.
I believe it is running Ubuntu Server 10.04. Thanks in advance for suggestions.
