su root not working
I tried to create a droplet, I went with the default settings, I picked an SSH key.
I then logged into it fine with the SSH key I picked.
I then created a new user.
$adduser bob<ENTER> $su bob<ENTER>
That was fine.
But now I can’t
If I try blank password it won’t let me. And I didn’t set a password for root. I only did default settings.
How am I meant to do it?
