How to assign a password to root after instantiating a VPS with the SSH authentication option
After instantiating an Ubuntu VPS droplet, I found myself needing to terminate and start over because I could not get back to being root after su'ing to another user account. Then I realized I never assigned a password to root, I had chosen the SSH option on the ‘Create Droplet’ page. How does this happen what’s the proper way to deal with this?
My objective is set up a simple OpenVPN account. What is the simplest way to achieve this?
