Hello,

Have you checked your emails for the new root password or check your initial email with the original root password?

The password reset might take up some time, but it will eventually work fine.

Let us know how it goes.

Yes, I used new password from email. But can not login.

I tried reset password with other droplet, it worked.

But this droplet, can’t not login. it said that incorrect login

  • Can you access the droplet via console and if so can you add your ssh key manually so you can access the droplet without using your password?

    You can copy your ssh key - id.rsa.pub in the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file

    Let me know how it goes.

  • Can not login with new password from web console :(
