How to change your SSH/sFTP password
Note: We use the user account to assist in managing your server. If you change your password without telling us the new password, we don't be able to log into your server to manage/fix things.
To change your SSH/sFTP password, follow these steps.
- Use PuTTY to log into your server, see our Using PuTTY page on how to do that.
- At the command line, type: passwd
- it will ask you for your current password, retype it in, then it'll ask for your new password. Type it in.
- After it's done it'll return you to the server's command line. From there you can logout by typing: exit
