Can't get back into Switch

I have an HPE Aruba 2530-8G PoE switch here.  Yesterday I tried to set it up.  I logged into it, started creating all the vlans I needed, changed the IP address, and started to tag and untag the ports that needed it on each vlan.  About half way through I lost connection to the switch.  I must have changed something on a vlan that made me lose connection.  But for some reason I do have a PC connected to the switch and it has internet access.  I just can't get back into the web interface of the switch to finish configuring all of the vlans.

Hello

You can access the switch CLI with a console cable.

In the CLI you can check your ip adress or vlan settings, if that is what you misconfigured.

I can try that but I'm pretty close to a complete noob, I know, I'm sorry.  Guess I can find the commands needed somewhere on the internet.  I'll see what I can come up with.

Re: Can't get back into Switch

I know that you don't want to loose your configurations... but why don't you factory reset the switch, and start over? Maybe it can be quicker than drilling down your mistake.
