Recovering Access

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

  1. Get Emrah to ssh

If that doesn't work:

  1. Get the 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
  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
