1. I try to connect via ssh (using PuTTY) and I get a message saying the following:
WARNING - POTENTIAL SECURITY BREACH!
The server's host key does not match the one PuTTY has cached in the registry. This means that either the server administrator has changed the host key, or you have actually connected to another computer pretending to be the server' ….
2. I try to connect via ssh (using PuTTY) and simply get 'server does not exist'
3. There are two sites installed on the server:
4. If I reboot the Linode, I can see both the sites and connect to the server using PuTTY as usual for about 60 seconds. Then at least two of issues 1, 2 and 3 start to occur and I can no longer log in to the server in order to try and diagnose this.
Please could you let me know your thoughts on this.
Looking at your console logs, I'm seeing an ifconfig for an IP that doesn't belong to you.
ifconfig eth0 22.214.171.124 broadcast 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.255.0
However, your IP is 188.8.131.52.
