root password reset and permission denied afterwards

July 15, 2014 2.1k views

I am new to DO. After using ssh root@ip, yes, and prompted to reset the root password, the system automatically logged out. When I try to login in as root again with the new root password, the following error is given:
( I am using ssh -vvv id@ip )

debug2: we sent a password packet, wait for reply
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password
Permission denied, please try again.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Can you log in with the old password?

  • No. I need to reset root password through DO's website. I will be redirected to reset root password. The new root password doesn't work.
