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.

Hey all,

I’ll suggest using the Recovery Console. Here is a link to the documentation:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/how-to/recovery/recovery-console/

In there you shouldn’t experience the Connection closed issue.

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 !!
