Restore Network Interface via Web Console

If you upgraded your OS to a higher version or accidentally misconfigured VPS and lost network access, this tutorial will help you to restore network interface via Web Console.

1. Activate Web Console and login to the VPS
2. Review network interface information:

ifconfig -a

If you see that network interface is not loaded, try to restart it:

/etc/init.d/network restart


/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup venet0:0

3. If above methods fail, add and start network interface manually:

ip addr add dev venet0 VPS_IP/32
ifconfig venet0 up
route add default dev venet0

VPS_IP – your VPS IP address

4. If you upgraded your Debian OS (dist-upgrade) and lost network access, execute the command:

apt-get install upstart

If you still have problems accessing your VPS via SSH, open support request and we will help you to resolve the problem.
