What is the default password for root user account in Ubuntu?
I installed Ubuntu version 18.04 and nowhere during the setup process was i asked to set a password for the root user.
Thanks everyone..Is there anyway I can unlock /enable the root user account?
You cannot login to Ubuntu with user id root neither can you switch user using su - command.
The root account is locked by default in Ubuntu. For administrative tasks you have to use the sudo command.
sudo followed by the command that you want to run.
