Permission denied, please try again when logging into droplet with new password
I created a droplet. When trying to access it from my terminal it asked me for the password (I did not use SSH Key). I entered the password I got by email and asked me to change the password right away, which I did.
Changing password for root.
(current) UNIX password:
When I entered the password and pressed enter it closed my connection: Connection to xx.xx.xx.xxx closed.
Then I tried to access the droplet again (ssh firstname.lastname@example.org) but it denied me permission (Permission denied, please try again) when I entered the new password.
So I entered the old email password and went thru the same process again, asking me for new password and closing the connection.
So I can not get into the droplet. What am I doing wrong?
