I am the sole owner and user of this droplet.
I tried to install a python package and was told I did not have the correct permissions. How do I get permissioned to do this?
I tried to get the ‘su’ status, but even though I know the root password, I have no idea what the “(current) UNIX password:” is, which is what I am prompted to supply after clearing the first hurdle.
I know three passwords with this account: a password to log in via the browser, and a password for a user account I use with Putty/FTP, and the root password. How do I find the other one?
