Invoking root access under Ubuntu Server 7.04

August 21, 2007

To activate the root account, you have to set up the root password by typing:

sudo passwd root

and then you can type in the new password and get access to the root account. There are some other ways to do this, but for beginners who are learning as they go (like me!) this seems like the easiest.
