If you are new to DigitalOcean and just created your server (Droplet) you got root password emailed to you.
In case you used SSH key on Droplet Creation, you will not get root password so you need to use that key.

To access your server, you can use SSH or Web Console.

In case you don’t have non-root user or root password you can Reset Root Password via Control Panel or contact Support to mount recovery ISO to your Droplet so you can access console if you can’t use SSH.

DigitalOcean Droplets are managed using a terminal and SSH. SSH is an encrypted network protocol for remote server login and command execution. It is the standard method used for accessing and interacting with Linux servers. This tutorial shows how to connect to a DigitalOcean Droplet for the first time by using the OpenSSH client.
