Changed network config in PVE and can't reach WUI

Hi All,

Very new to proxmox; I installed it this week and went from standard Linux to the OVS configuration. Initially, my configuration was OVS Bridge + OVS IntPort, and looking at my friend's config realized that OVS Int Port was not needed. Once I made the configuration change, I can no longer access the interface IP or GUI. PFsense is working. I'm not sure what I did wrong. Unfortunately, I did not take a screenshot of the /etc/network/interfaces before making the changes. Here's what it looks like after the config changes were made.

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

I figured it out. It was IP'd on the wrong interface; it should have been on vmbr0. In my notes, I had this:

eno1(OVSport) - vmbr1 (OVS Bridge)
enp4s0(OVSport) - vmbr0 (OVS Bridge) - eth0 (OVS IntPort)

The mistake I made was IP'd it on vmbr1
