I’m having issues with logging in via SSH with Putty. I have tried resetting the root password, and a new password has been sent to my email address. However, when I try to login with “root” and the password, it says it is incorrect.
Is there anything I am doing wrong here? I’m currently using Ubuntu instead of Windows with Putty, so maybe pasting in the password doesn’t work or something?
