Fresh install, root user account suspended on first login?
« on: March 24, 2017, 06:34:56 PM »
I just installed CWP on AWS ec2 and grabbed my password from the install output.

I tried to login with root and it says *account suspended*

Ran grep root /etc/shadow and it returned:
root:!!:16853:0:99999:7:::

Any ideas what I did wrong?

simply set the password for your root account, logged in as root type "passwd" command and enter the new password.

Okay.

It must be noted that AWS would give you only ssh key access to your AS Lightsail instance, so you must setup your access.

Log in through ssh(ssh Client or Web)

Type

sudo passwd (this will allow you set a new password for your root access

Set up your root password, and login into your new CWP Installation.
