Cannot access droplet: Password change required but no TTY available.

Hi guys,

I have reset my droplet root password recently from Digital Ocean control pannel but after typing twice new root password it logs me out and the new password I’ve set is not taking effect and it forces me to reset it again and it keeps going in circle.

Any suggestions are welcome!

It was a space issue. As work arround rebooted via recovery option and free up some space via cat /dev/null > /path/to/file. Then either reset password or login as normal.

Thanks anyway! Artur

Notice that when you log in it requests the current password. Then it requests the new password twice. Make sure that you have those right and if it’s still giving you trouble if it’s new I would just destroy it and rebuild.
