Is it good practice to login as root?
I am quite new to programming. As I have read from different sources, login as root is generally considered bad practice in Linux.
Currently, I connect to my droplet via SSH by:
ssh -i mysshfile firstname.lastname@example.org
This would give me root access to my VM.
May I ask, is there a better way to access my VM?
