Why I haven't received an email with username & password to login with putty?

About 30 minutes ago I created a droplet but I can’t login using putty because I’ve not received the email containing required info. What should I do?

Heya,

You’ll need to reset your root password first, you can check how to do that here

https://docs.digitalocean.com/support/how-do-i-reset-my-droplets-root-password/

Additionally, you can use the Droplet Web Console:


The Droplet Console is a browser-based way to connect to Droplets. Instead of using ssh in a local terminal, you can use the Droplet Console in your preferred web browser.

The Droplet Console has a native-like terminal experience, so you can run commands on your Droplet from a familiar command-line interface. It also provides one-click SSH access to your Droplet without the need for a password or manual SSH key configuration.
