I think that I’ve messed up the
/dev/null on my droplet. When I login with my non-root user I get the following error:
-bash: /dev/null: Permission denied
The permissions of the file are:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1, 3 Jul 10 19:38 /dev/null
Are those permissions wrong? Do I have to change them or do I need to recreate the file?
Thanks a lot!

The permissions do not really look correct. What you could do in this case is just recreate the
/dev/null. You can do that with the following commands:
Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
