Login to Godaddy Server as Root User

Godaddy does not give root user login information as standard, but it is easy to switch to root user in an SSH terminal.


Download and run the Putty SSH program from their site HERE. Or download the windows version directly HERE.

In the "hostname" box insert the IP address of your server and click on "open" to open a connection.

Login with your default/main username and password.

To switch to root user, type:

su -

(including the space)

Use the same default password for root user. You are now logged in as root user.
