How To Enable Rescue Mode

Users can enable Rescue Mode in any VPS by switching on "Rescue Mode" option available in "Client Area".

Follow the screenshot below.

  1. Log in to your HOSTAFRICA client account.
     
  2. You will find "Rescue Mode" button in your Client Area.
  3. Step 3: It will ask you to enter the root password (PS: This login credential is used to enter in Rescue VPS)

    Please note: If you are using Rescue Mode for the first time, it will take 3 to 5 minutes to enable. 

 You have successfully enabled the Rescue Mode.

Enter Rescue VPS

SSH to the VPS in which you have enabled the Rescue Mode. You will find the predefined Debian based Rescue VPS. Now you can perform the operation you want on your VPS. You can mount your original VPS and get the data you want.

You can now administer your files and data.

Please note: Admin can't delete or edit the VPS while in Rescue Mode. However, Admin does have the privilege to disable the rescue mode from the Client Area. For LXC, the original VPS disk will be mounted on "/mnt".
