how to “you are required to change your password immediately (root enforced)”? as shown in the following link https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1q0YX8S1gnAdnpDbWxHeWlKNDQ/view?usp=sharing

I’m in the same situation but I’ve disabled root login using a password for security, so people can’t login without an SSH key. <br> <br>Is it possible to log in without a password?

@melanie: Enter your password. It won’t give you any feedback that it’s accepting your input but your password <strong>is</strong> being entered. Type it and press enter even if it doesn’t appear that anything is happening. :]

after entering root it then asks for my password, at that point nothing happens,

check you email, they mail the details after creating a droplet. <br>username is root and password is in the email, by default they provide SSH access of the account, rest can be taken care by us.
