Cannot SSH into EC2 Instance


I just resized my instance and now it's not responding to SSH to log into it and the web server is not running. I'm a little frantic to get this resolved so any help would be greatly appreciated. I've tried rebooting and stopping and starting the instance but there has been no change.
