I sutdown my server using init 0 at the console and now its status is destroyed and there is no option to start it, can I recover this?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if you didn't use TKLBAM to back
up your instance before it was shut down and it was an S3-backed
instance then unfortunately you're out of luck.
I'm going to guess you're using the Hobby plan which only supports
S3-backed instances. S3-backed instances have ephemeral storage for the
root partition. Ephemeral storage is non-persistent. When the server is
shut down, the storage is recycled for other instances. If you want
persistence and the ability to shut down machines when they're not in
use you're going to need to use an EBS backed instance instance.
I had selected restore backup to a new cloud instance. Looks like everything worked okay for the restore, but now I see satus "destroyed" and no option to start the server. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong here
But you can't 'stop' it. Perhaps try again...
