Error occurs saying" Please reset root password first." when I use VPSrobots to connect to my DigitalOcean droplets. What am I supposed to do?
DigitalOcean is pretty different from other IaaS providers, as they require a reset of the initial root password before you can successfully use a third-party control panel which includes VPSrobots to manage a DO server.
To reset the initial root password for a brand new DO VPS:
1. Log in to your VPS via the DO console or an SSH tool like PuTTY, using the default root password sent to your contact email by the DO official.
2. Reset the root password and save the change.
3. Use VPSrobots to connect to you VPS with the new root password.
