Connection Closes after changing root password

Posted September 1, 2014 23.8k views

I have created a new droplet, I got the root access to it, after I SSH and type the root password, I’m being forced to enter a new password, after that the connection closes and the new password is not saved!! I don’t know what is exactly the problem.

I recommend you to set the root password by accesing the web console instesd of ssh connection, go to droplet panel, press access button then console access.

I have the same issue connection closed after resetting the password !!

thanks guys, saved my life)

DigitalOcean now has become a liability for us as a company. We have a multi-instance architecture and due to their random-at-will changes it starting to affect our ability to run our business. We need to be able to spin-up new instances in hours and now we stuck with this rubbish. It takes time, research and lost productivity.

Yes I have the same problem, ssh disconect when I try change password.
The console droplet not work.
Don´t try work with Digital Ocean , I test and have lost , lost and lost my time, with simple trobles,
simple tasks, that you have , you need, spend a lot of time for fix.
And Digital Ocean saller one product like 512mb that don´’t work for one simple blog wordpress.
If you like spend your time for nothing… go ahead…
