You can reset your droplet’s root password in the ‘Access’ tab and then use the new password to log in to it using the Remote Console.

even if you gave this permission ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL to the user, you still need to give more permissions to the user to write / read/ execute files and/ or folders. <br> <br>I’m afraid you will have to restore your droplet to the point where your root login is enabled…!!! <br> <br>you could try to login and try the pass for the user you forgot if you can…otherwise, the only choice is the one I have mentioned… <br>

I have backup only. user was set these permissions ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
