HOW TO: Reset your root password for your OpenVZ VPS

Just go into Wyvern and click the Reset Password button. Keep in mind that this password is saved in plaintext in the database and viewable by anybody with access to your Client Area account. We suggest changing your password in your OS using the passwd command so it is not saved anywhere. Better yet, we strongly recommend that you stop using passwords for SSH altogether for the best security money can't buy.

Wyvern root

NOTE: This guide only works for OpenVZ. If you have a KVM VPS, you will need to consult with the OS developer for this because it will be different per OS if it's even possible. We do not have the ability to login or reset your root password for your KVM VPS. A re-install of the OS may be required.
