@306044543: Did you receive the root password via email? Are you able to log in via ssh?

thank you: <br>I see the solution that password the root in terminal on internet? <br>I do command passwd root in terminal,but there is error that passwd <br>is invalid?Hao can I change the root password? <br>

<b>“… i never set the password of root,what happned?”</b> <br> <br>Unless you uploaded & selected an SSH key when you created your droplet, the root password would have been e-mailed to you. Check your SPAM folder, just in case.
