how to recover the root password
should this have root: in front of this like of code?$6$i5Mz8m1/$dj.LPgZmri1I1PXyWzOhgb3pmqJEM4maE0iqXygYIKdKzGTv3l2JeZEDpGBWVh8R7lLvlXCDJrGgCjMhwlLNM1
sudo passwd root
Well I was not the only one giving this type of answer the moderator did it also!Assuming that OP still has access to gui. He did not provide detailed information, so I personally can not assume anything. The basic question is therefore the basic answer. Which will also work where there is no gui access.I went thru this process In the gui go to users yourself edit group admin, SSH and Sudo check marked
login in putty type
# sudo passwd root
and make sure in the gui ssh permit root access (I forgot this and I was stuck)
The chance he forgot the web interface password is much less than the root password since most people don't use the root password often. So, it isn't a bad assumption. If he forgot that one too, then there are plenty of other suggestions. No need to scold someone for assuming on a very non-dangerous suggestion.Assuming that OP still has access to gui.

We aren't writing information on a wiki. This is an interactive forum. To make a few assumptions is fine. If the advice didn't work, there is no danger in this case and the user will post that it didn't work. To keep telling people we are wrong for assuming is a waste of time.Basic question, give a basic answer.
This should always be a lesson for users to accurately provide information.
Nice way to reverse that to be my fault. You were the one writing that an opinion was wrong. I just said it is a waste of time to tell us that when we assume a detail or two that it is wrong to assume. Whatever. If I am just sharing a thought and that is ok, why are you not going to write anything anymore?? I will leave this thread because it is way off topic now and I am probably just making it worse.Sharing thoughts and exchanging opinions has never been a waste of time for me... Apparently this is a waste of time for this forum. Ok, next time I'll be sitting down and I will not write anything anymore, so I will not waste anybody's time.
How does one not take offense from that?Without Offense, maybe take out the stick from the ***
Nope. I will admit there are times I can't leave things alone (like this time) but shit like this is the reason I spend less and less time on the forum.Because I have the impression that you are really uptight and you see any problems everywhere.
Just the opposite. nefertiti and I both thought your comment was a bit unwarranted. Then you wrote a long post back educating me because I used the word scold (which was supposed to be somewhat humorous). Thanks for making it personal though...you see some things that do not take place and create conflated situations where they have never existed.
Good for you. Eat the cookie and pat yourself on the shoulder! Once a victim and once a tough guy. Like 40 and behaves like 12.Sorry, you don't offend me. I have dealt with much worse without breaking a sweat and do on a regular occasion being an "adult man" in my 40s. I don't think it is too much for people to be polite or professional though. I don't expect everything to be sugar-coated but I'm not a robot either. Your condescending posts irritate and I would do much better to have a conversation like this in person.. Either way, I will make sure your wish is granted from your other post and I will continue to mod this forum with unrealistic views (although other than a very few people, it has worked quite well for over 8 years).
The level of self-confidence and self-reflection emanates from you for a kilometer. I know people like you. Ever convinced that they are always right and they are never wrong. Oh, kneel worms before the master.
You are a great example of PR for OMV. @votdev must be proud of you!
Delete account. You will have at least some joy from life.
Incredible pathology. But it's good to know what I'm dealing with and never again donate to omv.
"buffoon" That's your father's name maybe.
First, learn to quote something before you start writing.
Go kiss your favorite moderator in three letters, because I see you kiss three letters from the very beginning. And as you erase the brown nose, check whether you can already log in to root.
If you block an account, block it, but to delete all 169 posts, even those that were helpful for users. Pathetic!
Apparently the truth hurts and you have to erase the tracks so that other users do not discover the truth!
Two more posts to be deleted! And the matter from your head.
