Reset root password after PermitRootLogin no
Hello! How are you?
Well, for security purposes I am trying to disable access from root. I am using the line: PermitRootLogin no". Password Authentication turned off too.
I am using SSH Keys.
The problem is when I access the Digital Ocean dashboard and click on reset root password. The new password is sent ok to my e-mail but I can’t access ssh root@ip again.
What should I do?
(If I change to PermitRootLogin on, I can access and recover it perfectly).
The point is recover access from clicking “reset root password” an gain access with permissions root login turned off…
Hope you understand (:
