How to fix the network error while connecting to your VPS after a restart.

Login using the VNC button

If using Ubuntu 18+ run the following command

nano /etc/netplan/50-cloud-init.yaml​

Once you run the command, add the line

on-link: true​

The file should now look something like this

# File is autogenerated by Cloud-Init and will be recreated after each bootnetwork: version: 2 ethernets: eth0: match: macaddress: 52:54:00:29:71:04 set-name: eth0 addresses: - 51.158.47.157/24 nameservers: addresses: [8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4] mtu: 1400 routes: - scope: link to: 163.172.21.84/32 via: 0.0.0.0 - to: 0.0.0.0/0 via: 163.172.21.84 on-link: true​

You can see the new line at the bottom.

Once you do this save the file and restart the VPS. It should now have a network connection.
