Changing the Server/VPS Password

Shortly after signing up with ChartVPS, you are assigned a default password for your server's administrative account. Follow these steps to change it:

Log onto your Server or VPS via Remote Desktop app - the app should be in full screen mode (maximized), not windowed

Press CTRL+ALT+END (on a PC) or FN+CONTROL+OPTION+DELETE (on a Mac)) key combination - PC users note, that's an END not DEL

Select Change a password

Select the option: Change a password

Enter old and new passwords and press enter

Enter the old password, and then new and press enter

Important: your password is your first line of defense so make sure it is a strong one. Use a combination of upper/lower case letters, numbers, and special symbols, and make it at least 10 characters long
