How do I reset my SSH password DigitalOcean?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 2:18 pm

SSH is a secure protocol used to log into remote systems. A SSH key is a file that stores the public key of the user and is used to log in to the system. The public key can be exported from the user’s SSH key pair and added to authorized_keys on the remote system. To reset the SSH password on a DigitalOcean droplet, first find the ID of the droplet. Next, open the DigitalOcean account management page in your web browser. Scroll down to the “Droplets” section and find the droplet with the ID you were looking for.

PRO TIP: If you are resetting your SSH password on Digitalocean, beware that this will also change your root password. Make sure you have a strong root password set before proceeding.

Click on the droplet’s name to open its details. On the “Settings” page, click on the “Security” tab. In the ” SSH” section, click on the “Change password” button. Enter the new password in the “New password” field and click on the “Change” button. Click on the “Close” button to finish the password reset process. Congratulations, your droplet has been successfully reset!.
