Question

Where do I find my password after I create a droplet with my ssh key

Posted October 26, 2014 1.8k views

I know I DO will not send me an email with the root password. But I need it because when I add an ssh key, Dokku asks me for my root password. Where do I find them? The only way I could get it is by resetting my password through the console, which they would then send me a password through my email. Any other ways? Thanks.

Connect to your droplet with root using your SSH key.

ssh root@droplet

Change the password to anything you like.

passwd
