    Default Changing root password of Ubuntu server

  2. #2


    While setting up server with Ubuntu OS, you have to create normal user account that does not have admin privileges. So when you try to change super user root, you just cannot login to root, because you don’t have the root password.

    To reset the root password, login to the server using the normal user create by you and use the following commands:

    sudo sh
    passwd root

    su /bin/bash
    passwd root | Dedicated Server Hosting | Cloud Server Hosting
