Hey @lousaint,

Are you trying to change the root password of your server or the password for your DigitalOcean account?

In case you need to change your root password, you can follow the steps here:

Note that this would require a reboot for your server.

If you need to change the password for your DigitalOcean account, please reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with your account issue! :)

Hope that helps!
- Bobby.
