Unable to access droplet console through website

When I created my droplet I did it through setting up an SSH key.

I’m trying to access the console thing through the website but it’s asking me for a login and password, I tried using my DigitalOcean login info but that wasn’t it.

Where do I get said login and password?

Thank you

Hello, @jouo

If you do not remember your login credentials for your droplet you can simply reset the root password from the control panel.

You can follow this steps:

Login to your control panel --> Click Droplets --> Select your droplet --> Go to the Access tab --> Click the Reset Root Password button

This will send you an email to the address associated with your DigitalOcean account. You can use the password provided to log in to your Droplet through the console.

Hope this helps!
