Hi community — love Discourse. And this time around, I want to set it up myself.
I’m a complete non-programmer.
I have created a droplet in DigitalOcean. I have created an account / sub-domain in Mailgun and my credentials are ready.
However, I’m stuck here:
Access Your Cloud Server
Connect to your server via its IP address using SSH, or Putty on Windows:
Enter the root password from the email DigitalOcean sent you when the server was set up. You will be prompted to change the root password.
I have for real never opened Terminal before today. And I don’t see a root password email. I just have the email from DigitalOcean congratulating me on my coupon and giving me set up instructions.
Question: how do I use ssh to get access to the droplet? And what kind of password am I looking for?
