Lightdail instance retirement scheduled - instance has become unreachable.


Hi! I have been running a Lightsail instance for a couple of years without problem. Two days ago the instance became unreachable. I've had a note in 'Scheduled Changes' about a lightsail instance retirement scheduled for 10th March. It does say in this description that 'Your instance may already be unreachable'.

I can't get in to the server via Plesk or SSH, rebooting does nothing. I detatched and reattached the static IP which did nothing.

I tried taking a snapshot - but that has been 'Snapshotting...' for a while with no result.

I have just tried to stop the instance in order to start it again, but it seems to be frozen in Status: Stopping.

I have tried all I can to get back in to this instance, is there anyone out there who can help at this point?

Many thanks.

The stop eventually worked, and on restarting the instance now works.
