App Console Root Password

What’s the root password for an App on the App platform? There are a lot of directions in this forum for the root password of a droplet, but they don’t apply to an App since there’s no “Access” section for an App.

I’ve tried by DigitalOcean account password and it doesn’t work.

Hey there,

App platform is a managed way to host applications – you give the location of your git repository or container image, and it deploys the app for you. You can configure features like custom domain names through the console after deploying your app. It’s unlike a droplet ( which give you your own virtual machine. There isn’t a way to log into app platform, since it’s not a VM.
