Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I've got a new dedicated server Fedora Core 8. The root password and the main user password are supposed to be the same, but they're not. I can ssh in using the main user, but if I su root and enter the password, it says it's invalid. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ward

Put in a support ticket and request more help. they usually take abount and hour or two to get back to you.

You can change it from within your GoDaddy logon. The account management page has a link for changing the password on your box.
