Hello, I was working to add a new user on our droplet, and I accidentally disabled the root user ssh key login. Is there a way to revert back to password login for the root user? If I set PasswordAuthentication to yes in sshd_config and restart ssh, it still asks for the password for the SSH key when I login with root.
