Please help me if you can.

Need to install hestiacp root?
I bought an OVH VPS
I need to log in to ssh root
With os comes Username debain
Can’t root log in ovh?

I logged in root as follows

sudo su -
sudo passwd root
sudo nano / etc / ssh / sshd_config
PermitRootLogin yes
service ssh restart

Is that correct? Is it safe?

How to disable debain login received with os?
I must have only root logged in

deluser debian should work fine.

Personally I would keep the root user disabled and login with the debian user.

Only things to do is add:


to /root/.bash_profile



if [ "${PATH#*/usr/local/hestia/bin*}" = "$PATH" ]; then
    . /etc/profile.d/

After the install is complete. This makes sure that the paths are loaded correctly


thank you
