Recovering Access

In the unlikely event that Tanner kicks the bucket, recover access like so:

  1. Get Emrah to ssh eatil@

If that doesn't work:

  1. Get the directors@protospace.ca DigitalOcean credentials from LastPass
  2. Log into DigitalOcean
  3. Select Droplets > webhost
  4. Select Access > Reset root password
  5. A new root password will be emailed to directors@protospace.ca
  6. Open the web console under the green ON button (not Recovery Console)
  7. Log in as root
  8. Find someone that knows Debian / Ubuntu Linux
  9. Create a Linux user, add your public key, edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config AllowUsers
