Accidentally changed ownership of all droplet folders
Hello, by mistake I changed the ownership of almost ALL folders of the droplet, including /root therefore I cannot login via ssh as root anymore. It asks me the password but I created root account only with ssh key access. Right now I can only access as the sudo user to which I gave ownership, but I’m not able to switch back with chown.
What can I do to save the situation?
