    I host with Vultr and for no apparent reason, my server became inaccessible tonight. You can't browse it's websites, and I can rarely get in via SSH.

    I have to time my SSH login just after the server boots up, otherwise, I can't get in. Once in, I can't ping any external URLs.

    Here's what I see in the KVM after rebooting:

    Any suggestions?

    could be you blocked your IP from CSF Firewall but it wouldn't affect web site viewing only your SSH log in

    you can log into my.vultr.com to your VPS and use the view console red button to log into your server. On first viewed via console, you will get a black screen, use keyboard movement to wake screen up and wait till user root prompt comes up

    Thanks for the reply. CSF ended up not being the issue. I could disabled it and the problem wouldn't go away.

    It turns out that, somehow, my eth0 config was messed up, preventing all network connectivity.
