Ensure there is no other tty#.conf files. If so rename them to tty#.old (Note # represents a number)
Now Edit the file as per below with an editor like nano or vim:
nano /etc/init/tty.confReplace anything in there with:
# This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is # started until it is shut down again. start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL= stop on runlevel [!2345] respawn exec /sbin/agetty -8 tty1 38400Close and save.
Once done reboot the VPS or run "start tty" and it should be working.
