I would personally recommend downloading PuTTY(google it) and connecting through that. You can enter your servers ip address in the field provided and connect from there.

Alternatively if your issue is you are not SEEING your password as you enter it that is a feature of terminal linux. Don't worry the password is still there. Simply type it in and press enter.
If you see a black screen just click on it and click any key to activate the console window. If you continue to have issues, please feel free to file a support ticket.
Does the password is my droplet' password?

Yes, it's the password that was mailed to you when you created the droplet.
But,when I enter my password on the keyboard , it turns out to be incorrect .why?
You can request a password reset in the control panel:

Hi there,
I have faced same problem. Please try the password and root username two or more times with the console screen. Then It will show you password resetting option. Then change the password as you want. then enjoy console access. Thank you. Cheers!

Hi, There

I've changed all my login accesses to SSH key login only since I was root-compromised sometime ago.

The problem is that while accessing my server via online console, it prompts to type in password.

How should I login without password?

  • You need the root password in order to use the Remote Console. If you do not know what it is, you can reset it from the control panel:
