Managing Your Server - Reset Your Server Password


Note: UK Cloud customers must use https://mycloud.rackspace.co.uk/ to access our New Cloud Control Panel.

An extremely important aspect of managing your server is controlling the (Linux) root or (Windows) Administrator account password.  You can always reset it through the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel.  

Please Note:  Changing the server password also initiates a system reboot.  Make sure all your configuration changes on your machine have been saved before resetting your password, or they will not take effect.

Once you enter the new password your server will reboot and the new password will be in set.
