    You cannot log in to your virtual dedicated server remotely using "root." If you need "root" access on your virtual dedicated server, use the su - command once you have logged in with your User ID.

    The su (short for substitute user) command makes it possible to log in as root temporarily while you are logged in with your normal User ID.

    To use su to log in as "root," type:

    su -
    Your root password is the same as the password for your normal User ID.
