Hi @HidingTealAnemone,

The only way is to use the Recover Console. There are two ways to go about it though. You’ve found the docs but just in case here they are :

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/resources/recovery-console/

Alternatively, you can use the Droplet Console. Use the Droplet Console for native-like terminal access to your Droplet from your browser. Here is the list of supported OSes for the new console.

To enable the Droplet Console, log in to your Droplet as root or as a user with sudo access. Once connected, download and execute the agent installation script with the following command to enable the console immediately:

wget -qO- https://repos-droplet.digitalocean.com/install.sh | sudo bash

Those two are the only options I see.
