If you have lost your root password and can not access your VPS, you can recover it or even change it remotely via the Unihost Client Area.

  • Log into Unihost Client Area.
  • In the sidebar on the left click Services > My Services.DS_271117_4182a1
  • Click Manage Product.
  • On the Manage Product page, find the Root Password line and two buttons next to it. The button displays your current password, while the pencil button allows you to change it.DS_271117_81af47

It can take up to a minute to change the root password, and the VPS might reboot during it.

WARNING: If you set up your password via SSH/VNC/RDP, the password shown by clicking the button won’t be correct. You will still be able to change it by clicking the Pencil button.
