Suspended admin user

I’m running Hestia on AWS Lightsail but needed to increase my instance size. So I created a snapshot of my existing instance and created a new instance with said snapshot. Everything is working fine. I can view the websites, login to FTP, etc. But I can’t login to Hestia as the admin user because it says “Account has been suspended”. I did NOT suspend the account. Something happened automatically.

I followed the instructions here: Suspended Admin - #2 by eris

I deleted the applicable lines. Unsuspended the admin user. But when I try logging in as admin I get suspended again. What the heck is going on?

Well it appears the password got reset somehow when I created the new instance? I ran v-change-user-password admin new-pass and it seems to be working now.
