Was in the middle of working on a website on a linode server when suddenly it went offline. Trying to connect via the web I get:

 This site can’t be reached

 xxxxx.com took too long to respond.

 Search Google for xxxxx


This is from every browser , including in incognito mode. I cannot connect via SSH either. Also a PING results in a time out. From the Linode Provider: The status of the system is boot and I can login via a web interface.

On the system itself:

skunkworks:~$ networkctl list
WARNING: systemd-networkd is not running, output will be incomplete.

I see this! So I try:

@skunkworks:~$ sudo systemctl restart systemd-networkd
@skunkworks:~$ networkctl list

A little better but still no website or SSH! What happened and any ideas on how I can fix this?


It might have reverted your firewall settings. Check it:

/sbin/iptables -t filter -L -n
