I cannot access to my droplet by ssh or console after password reset
I have a CentOS droplet for which I had set up an ssh key. I have new computer, do not have the ssh key. I did a password reset, enter with putty, I am asked to enter a new password, which I do, and putty crashes after I hit enter after confirming new password. I tried several times, without success. So I tried via console in DO panel control, several times also. I enter new password, confirm, and the console asks me again to log in. If I try with new password, the login is incorrect. If I try with ‘old’ one (the resetted password), once again I am prompted to enter a new password, which I do, and the vicious circle continues.. What is going on? should I destroy the droplet?
