FreeBSD 10.2 Default Root Password?!

Hello, I’ve installed freebsd 10.2 on my droplet. I can login with my SSH private key with the user called “freebsd”. How can I login with root user? I don’t know what its default password is.

Thanks in advance! :)

Hi, root login is disabled by default. I strongly advise to leave it disabled. If you need to perform privileged operations, you have the sudo command enabled.

Anyway, for reference, you can set a root password with: sudo passwd root This will not enable ssh login with root. Again, is strongly suggested to keep it disabled from ssh login.
