I can't login on my droplet, already tried to reset my root pasword.

I tried to login into my droplet with my root credentials, but it still keeps asking my password. So I tried to reset my root password (recieved the recovery ‘mail’), but it still keeps prompting asking my login.

Kind regards

On login after reseting root password, you could be asked to change password.
When you login via SSH with new password, you’ll see something like:
current Password. You need to enter current one again, and after that two times new one.

  • That’s the problem, I can’t login with the reseted root pasword. It keeps asking to login. I tried with the root user and my other user, but no result.

Hi @gschnieders, by any chance, did you disabled remote login using root? @xMudrii if that’s the case, will a password reset allow him to login using root?
