    Changing VPS root

    Hello, I bought an VPS account with Centos OS preinstalled. Am I normally allowed to / should be able to change the VPS password? Thank you.

    Once you are logged in as root, just type "passwd" without the quote and it will ask you for the new password.

    Hi!
    You can...and should..often.

    Now...If the VPS is managed...I would suggest you follow their guidelines to enable them to do their job...when doing this. If they really need it (some don't though-best to ask) to do their job...most supply you with a control panel to change the password...so they have a updated password as well. Of course..you can do it either way.

    If I changed root password, is it still accessible?

    ...If I changed root password, is the VPS account still acesssible by the host administration/support staff by other means, or they need me to send them the changed password?
