Can't login to drop via ssh to root user after root password reset
Hi. using droplet :
I have an issue with the root password of our droplets. still able to login with ssh keys to forge user.
But when i try to switch to root user with new password that i got in email, it still says incorrect password
so to droplet really can’t login as the root, only an ordinary user. we can’t do any changes that involves root permission.
Can you please advise on how we can retrieve our root password.
