Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using EC2 instance Micro free tier since March,2011. well, it works fine for my personal wordpress website. but today, when I try to connect to my server using ssh, it give me this error

PTY allocation request failed on channel 0

so I login to aws console. but the console ask me to sign up for ec2 again. after signing up, there's no instance anymore!

I try to contact with amazon using it's support and forums, but no feedback so far.

As my website is viewable, I think my instance is still in somewhere of the EC2 clouds. But I have no way to connect or find my server instance.

here is the ssh output by using -vv

If it asked you to sign up again, you are probably using the wrong email-account to logon. Do you have any other accounts?

About the ssh-error:
Try running ssh with -vv and post the results here. It isn't looking to good, since you are unable to sign in via SSH.

It would be best to detach the EBS-block and mount it on a new instance (not as the root-block) and try to resolve the issues (depending on what the -vv tells you) like that. Otherwise you could keep using the new instance and use the old EBS-block to get any files you might need.

I have one account. The weird thing is that my payment information is also lost –  Jayson Apr 15 '11 at 14:14
