Preface: I am not new to configuring my own servers from scratch.
My root password is not being sent to my email, so therefore, I cannot do anything with my server. Honestly, what a disastrous process. I changed my account e-mail address today, and it was a confirmed change, and now shows up under my account. Has anyone had this issue?
I already have SSH keys generated, and can connect via Putty, but then you get the idiotic “Must change root password immediately” message. I don’t have my password since, DO is not sending it to me.
