My relay was running continuously 40 days on a digital Ocean droplet running Ubuntu 20.4 when it suddenly crashed. I monitor the relay using putty and NYX. At 11pm I checked the relay and it was operating normally. I checked the relay again in the late AM the next day and I was greeted with "tor control port closed, exiting" The relay has since crashed as the first time. For the last day I've been trying to restart the relay and I continually get the following error message:
Have tried resolving or connecting to address '[scrubbed]' at 3 different places. Giving up [3 duplicates] I also get the usual port error message stating nothing is posted until the ports are reachable. Until this error is cleared, tor evidently can't connect to/or the outside cannot connect to me.
This is a new error message to me (yet again). I have no idea with this. Any help would certainly be appreciated. Thank you!
