I was originally having trouble with the MySQL server getting errors and I read a comment on a forum board saying that once they rebooted Ubuntu, the MySQL server started to work again. So I decided to do
sudo reboot and I immediately got a message saying:
Connection to insert_ip_address closed by remote host.
I tried to ssh back into server and I got a
ssh: connect to host insert_ip_address port 22: Connection timed out
I thought to myself, maybe I have to wait for a couple of minutes for it to comeback on. Unfortunately, I have been trying to log back in for the past couple of hours and I still get the same message. I have this Ubuntu server from Digital Ocean. I know there is an option to power off or power cycle your server. I did both of these and I still cannot log back in.
