Have been able to solve this, what I did to make it work, I don’t know.

it’s strange but it’s working

Hello, zionnite555

This sounds weird indeed, but I’m glad that you’ve sorted this.

When you reset the root password of your droplet you can try to manually type the password in the console or in your ssh-client in order to make sure that you’re not copying any blank characters along with the password.

Hope that this helps!

Alex
