OK, I’m an idiot, I’ve been trying to use the web console to access my droplets, but it keeps asking for a password (running Ubuntu 18.04 with WordPress). So I hit reset password. Now, I got the new password via email.
but when I login, it asks for the reset password and then asks for a new one and then logs out. But when I log in again, it asks for the “emailed password” and keeps looping.
I’m wondering have I hit a bug. I noticed that I set this up to use ssh passwords (I have an SSH key loaded). So somewhere I read that if this happens, you automatically disallow password login via SSH. So am I stuck in the loop for that reason.
Net, net, how do I force a Droplet to stop doing this, it looks like the password has been set to aged out. And now when I try to ssh in from my machine (not the web console), it logs in properly, then asks for a new password, logs out and loops as well. Argh!!!
