[Others]initial root password for ubuntu installation

Created#
More Posted time:Dec 26, 2016 20:55 PM
I'm a total beginner here. I just purchased the starter plan and fired up my first Ubuntu instance.
It's running and I'm trying to SSH in as root.... and realized I don't know the root password. I've been clicking around trying to figure this out for a while. Could someone point me in the right direction? Whenever I've installed Ubuntu on my own physical servers, I've had a chance to set the root password. I'm not sure what to do at the moment.

I managed to figure it out. I reset the password for the instance under the More menu for the instance in the ECS control panel. Then restarted the instance and was able to login as root.

You can modify it from the console after the instance is created.

Use "root", not "Root". Case matters.
