I have used DigitalOcean and created a droplet. I also set a new password for root user. However, I haven’t used that account for two to three weeks and I have forgotten the password. How to reset that password?

Hello, @vpp612

You can reset the root password for your droplet from the control panel. Once you’re logged in go to Droplets --> Click on the Droplet name --> Click on the access tab/menu --> Click the “Reset root password” button

That’s it! You should receive an email shortly containing the new root password.

Hope this helps!

Alex
