I’ve created droplet with ubuntu and wordpress(one-click install). Tried to connect - it automatically suggest me to change password. I’ve type new password and putty turns off. Same situation with winSCP. Googling does not help - shows only just this situation - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/i-can-t-change-my-password-on-putty-or-others-when-i-changed-my-password-the-window-was-closed-automatically-but-there-s-no-change-with-my-password-debian-7 which is useless, cause I even can’t type sudo passwd or else commands.
