@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.

You can reset your root password by navigating to your droplet’s page in our control panel and clicking the ‘Reset root password’ button in the ‘Access’ tab.
