Website is down after resetting droplet root password. I don't remember the sudo username either... What can I do?

  • I do know the sudo username... I already changed the root password, and am able to access the droplet console

  • To find out the user names run cat /etc/passwd . Try running service apache2 start or service nginx start in order to start the webserver.
