Im having trouble accessing an instance, earlier I couldn’t delete a directory on this instance, and now I can’t access the instance at all, I can log into the instance through ssh but it freezes (see image below)
I have another instance that seems to be working fine.
This instance should be fixed, but please check the mountpoints of your disks - GVLs of this vintage will remount
/mnt on reboot, which is probably not what you had setup initially. Check mountpoints with the command
Other than that, please try to keep your instance up-to-date with the latest security and package updates by periodically running
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
and rebooting when requested.
all working now
up-dating my instance now
Sorry not quite sure what this means
That’s good - thanks for the screnshots!
The left-most columns are disks and partitions in a tree structure, the right-most column is where the disk/partition is mounted.
You have the partition
dev/vda1, which is mounted at the filesystem root (
/), and two more volumes with a single partition on each, which aren’t yet mounted.
All you need to do is:
sudo mount /dev/vdb1 [directory to mount the disk at]
sudo mount /dev/vdc1 [another directory to mount a disk at]
Which follows the final steps of Tom’s tutorial here.
I will remount them now
(a picture is worth 1000s words)
Sorry, more screen shots, I ran ‘sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade’
and it successfully finished, however next time i logged into my instance there appeared to be even more updates needed. Am i missing something?
