EC2 instance stuck at boot with not enough space. Can't log it via SSH (not responsive enough to connect). What can I do?


The instance is running cloudron from marketplace. I had not enough space left to back up apps in cloudron neither update. So here's what I did :

Changed the attached volume to 40 gb instead of 20, in Amazon AWS Came back to cloudron. Was still showing 20gb. 127 mb left. Rebooted the machine using cloudron admin Nothing.. Rebooted in AWS.. nothing. Not responding but booting.

I managed to get logs after a successfull boot in a really unstable Cloudron admin.

AWS says instance is online. But I can't log it via SSH (not responsive enough to connect). What can I do?

Have you tried mounting the EBS volume on another instance? Might be able to expand the volume partition on another machine and reattach.
