hi. i just signed up and created one centos server. as far as i know, i am supposed to receive an email which contains root password and other info. but i can’t see it in my mailbox. i tried to reset root password so that i can receive relevant email but nothing happened. i can see a paypal - which i signed up in order to sign up digital ocean - welcome email so i don’t think there is a problem in my mail server. can you guys tell me what is wrong? i am urgent but cant do anything…

I too experienced this problem with initial creation of the droplet. However, resetting the droplet’s root password triggered the email.

Until the issue is fixed, try this:

  1. create your droplet
  2. goto > Droplets > Access
  3. Reset Root Password

Check your email, you should have received the access password. At least I did.

Same issue. Googling will find you so many issues with the root password email not coming through. Was testing to see how digitalocean compares as a VPS provider…not a great start.

The same issue. The SSH Key process ask for a root password to complete. I din’t receive even the first root password nor droplet create notification. Frustrating
