I am not sure if this is the tutorial you followed, if not I would recommend checking this one out.

If you did not set up your droplet with ssh-key based authentication you should receive an email with a default root password. With this you should be able to log in with the following:

Host: Your droplet’s IP
Protocol: SSH
Port: 22
User: root
Password: Password that was emailed to you

When you first log in you will be prompted to change your password. After entering your password you will be asked:

  • To enter the temporary password again.
  • To enter a new password
  • To re-type the new password

Once this is done you will have access to your shell.
