"Login incorrect" message after changing the password

  • Posted December 12, 2014

Hello! I have a little problem with logging in a console. When I first time open it, I entered “root” login and password from email. After it, I saw the message, that I have to change my pass. I chngaed it, but now when I`m try to log in with this pass and logun “root”, I see that “Login incorrect”. What do I have to do?(

@oyty is correct, when prompted to change the password you’re meant to retype the default one first and then the new one.

My fix for this was that I’d been trying to paste the password but the console won’t accept pastes. You have to type the password in manually.

tiene razon la persona que dice que es el lugar indicado es incorrecto. la pantalla da la imprecion de que solo se pone el pasword 1 sola vez y se pone 2 veces.

paso 1 es meter el password que te manda digitalocean al mail

paso 2 repetir en la conzola el mismo password mandado por correo, no se por que pero se repite poner el pasword y eso te manda despues a que pongas ya un nuevo password.

que es el paso 3 repetir el nuevo password y listo.
