I need help logging into the my new Droplet.
I’ve tried using the console with root, and the supplied password without success. The console doesn’t want to accept the password, and when it occasionally does it will not allow me to reset the password. The worst part is the copy paste function is not working either so I manually type it in each time… Grrrrrr… When I finally get to the password reset prompt it will not accept my new password. Are there specific character requirement for the new password? In any case, I’ve created and destroyed several Droplets and have not yet been successful logging into root. This last time decided to download Puddy and use keys… I’ve created a new Droplet with the “public key” added, but still cannot manage to get logged in. This has been an all day struggle and help is greatly appreciated....
