[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.
