What happens if I reset my root DO password while still configured w/ ServerPilot?
Hi there -
I’m running a basically vanilla install of Wordpress one click install - Ubuntu 16.04.4 x64
I have everything configured through ServerPilot, which basically manages all of my db administration and such. Right now, I’m dealing with an issue where I need to do some debugging to figure out why my mail server isn’t working as intended, and will need to access the DO console directly.
I do not remember the root password. Stupid mistake, I know, trust me. The articles I’ve read indicate that resetting the root password is pretty straightforward - just going to the admin area with DO and turning off the droplet and resetting the password - my question though, is once I turn off my droplet, can I turn it back on again instantly? Does anyone have experience with using DO w/ ServerPilot, and know if I will screw anything up if I reset the root password while still connected to serverpilot?
Thanks in advance!
