Unable To Change Root Password
After resetting the root password on my droplet using the web interface, I can no longer log into my droplet. When I try to connect via ssh or via the web interface’s console, I am prompted for the root password (which was emailed to me), after which I am prompted to change my password. There are three steps here, all of which I am completing correctly: first I enter in the old root password, and then I type in my new password twice. After this happens, I am immediately logged out of the droplet, and the new password is not saved, so I am unable to access my droplet. How can I get back into my droplet?
