I lost my Cloud password. How can I recover it?


Customer Care is able to provide assistance in recovery of an existing password, however, it is better to reset the password directly.

In order to reset a root password, you must log into your control panel at serverportal.com, and click on the “cloud” option under the services. If you have not done so, please make sure to agree to the Cloud TOS before proceeding.

 

 

  1.  Stop the cloud server by pressing the STOP button.

    Cloud Reset Pass - Stopping the instance

    Then you will see this.  Click the Yes button.

    Your server will begin stopping.

    If you press the RESET PASSWORD button before you stop the server you will see the following.

  2. Once the server has stopped, Press the RESET PASSWORD button.

    You will see this confirmation message.  Press Yes.
