    Hello,

    I shutdown the vps because I had some major lag and couldn't turn off a server that I was hosting, now none of the password work, what am I supposed to do please help! I can't log on via putty of the console on the admin control panel. I can't login as root, which I could 1 second before reboot. I can't connect as any other sub users. Please help I am basically locked out what am I supposed to do!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You say you were running a VPS. What was the controller system, and what user/directory service were you running?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
