Writing symbols like "/" in VNC from Digital Ocean Console Page
I have a Centos VPS. Even when I'm kind of new configuring Linux, it's known to me that I have to unable root access for security purposes. But then what can I do If I have to enter root again?
Once I tried to access the Console through VNC from DigitalOcean page. My trouble is that I couldn't type many symbols like "/", thing that prevents me from navigating through folders.
I tried creating an admin user, but I'm not very sure if I did well, since I couldn't access all files.
My questions are:
- How can I type symbols like "/" in the VNC Console?
- Should I rely only on the new admin user?
- Opening root should be a necessity in the future?
PD: I'm not sure if it has something to do with my laptop keyboard, but my configuration is Spanish ISO.
