Hello, I have installed Yunohost on a debian 10 vps, im able to log into the web admin and install applications. The issue I have is that I cannot log into my server as root or admin after installing Yunohost. When using ssh email@example.com -i ~/.ssh/server (1’s being an example), It gives me a message like “firstname.lastname@example.org password:” as oppose to automatically logging me in before with my previous setup. After I input and enter my root password it gives me the message “Permission denied (publickey,password).”
How do I log into my server after Yunohost has changed my password?
What has the password I previously had for root changed to?
Is it possible to reset my password through the new email I created for the first user.
I was able to log in! I had tried figuring out how to log in with no success, and did not see it anywhere in the documentation because I guess it’s assumed users would figure it out? I think your post should be put into the documentation for users new to Linux.
Thank you so much for the clear and concise solution!
FileZilla is a multi-protocol filetransfer client, is it not? Which protocol do you use? How far do you get logging in, and which error does it give?
Once connected, your movement on the filesystem is relatively limited as admin, because of access rights. You should be able to access /home/admin and quite a few others, but many are closed for admin.
Is there a specific directory you want to reach?
To keep things tidy, you might want to start a new thread specific for Filezilla access with reference to this thread. That way other Filezilla users can find it back easily!
Root will not work indeed, for security root is not allowed remote access (‘root’ is the only user that is available on all Unix-like systems, and has all rights above that. It is to powerful to risk a breach.)
What is ‘it’ in this case? Also the connection? Please start a new thread, and spend a minute reading the helpful text that explains how other people can help you!
