Question

My temporary password not changing when I ssh to my server

Hi, when I ssh to my server: $ssh root@[ip.address] then I can connect to my server without any problem. But I just noticed that the temporary password that I used to connect to server via FileZilla was not changed every time I do “ssh” since I reset password for my droplet. That’s weird because it was updated with different one when I connect to server before.

Any ideas?

@ryanpq Thanks for your response. It’s not about prompt to change temporary password. What I meant was the Pass “X54hg465xKj” as below. Before it was changed every time I made ssh to my ip address. But now it’s fixed as “X54hg465xKj” all the time.

Thank you for using DigitalOcean’s Rails Application. We have created a default Rails application that can be seen from http://ip.address/


You can use the following SFTP credentials to upload your webpages (using FileZilla/WinSCP/Rsync): Host: ip.address User: rails Pass: X54hg465xKj

These instructions are stored in /root/RAILS for your review. You can use the following MySQL database credentials: DB: rails User: rails Pass: UI54bdlJLLD If you require root database credentials, they are in /root/.my.cnf

The prompt to change your temporary password is only displayed the first time you log into your new droplet.
