Set Login Credentials

The following ways are supported to log in to your instances. Please keep your password safe.

System-generated Root Password

A system-generated root password will be emailed to you after the instance is provisioned. You can use the password to log in.

You are recommended to change the system-generated root password as soon as you have logged in to your instance for security reasons.

SSH Keys

Place your public key on your instance to access it securely. Your public key is typically located at /.ssh/ and begins with ssh-rsa. You must securely store the private key and ensure its confidentiality. Be careful not to use your private key.

Set up Own Password

Choose your own password between 8 to 16 characters, containing at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, one number, and one special character.
