How can we reset our root password
We have an issue with the root password of our droplets. This is because our former server admin is not connected with us anymore, and there was no proper turnover of the documents. we are left actually with no server admin. we can still log into our droplets as root but that is because we use ssh keys.
But there is one droplet where we really can’t login as the root, only an ordinary user. we can’t do any changes that involves root permission.
Can you please advise on how we can retrieve our root password.
