Question Cannot login as ROOT at the Server but can login using other users,


Good Morning to U

I am new to LINUX and i encountered this problem this morning. I cannot log into my test server as ROOT but as with other users, NO PROBLEM. I can log in as other users then SU - ROOT. At my pc, i can log in as ROOT via PUTTY and WINSCP.

Could u please advice me on what went WRONG.

Thank u and have a great week ahead.

Are you talking about locally, or over SSH? If you are trying to log in over SSH, then the problem is that remote root logins are disabled by default.
