I am able to log into the DigitalOcean main site and see my Droplet.

When I bring up the console, however, my login credentials are not working.

What to do?

Hi @jeraldcole,

The Console for your droplet does not use your credentials for your account. In order to login to the console from your Control Panel, you first need to request a password reset for the droplet itself.

To do that, you can go to the droplet’s menu, click on the Access page and then the Reset root password button. This will send an e-mail to you providing your with the root’s user password. Once you have it, you should be able to login to your droplet’s console without a problem.
