  • Linux instance. I am following these instructions and everything is looking fine. The original problem accessing my site happened when I attached a new volume to it. It was during that troubleshooting that I discovered that I could no longer connect to my instance. Could they be related?

    Yes, I think they are related.
    Please share the error when connecting.
