VPS / VDS hosting >  Resetting root password in Centos 7 and Centos 6

To reset the root password on centos, you need to obtain and configure a VNC client. Then, in the client menu, restart the server by pressing the Ctrl + Alt + Del key. The server counts down for a few seconds when loading, press Esc to stop loading. 

Next, to edit the download, you need to press "e".

Find the line that starts with "linux", change the "ro" parameter to "rw", remove the "rhgb" and "quiet" parameters; add "rd.break enforcing = 0" at the end of the line as shown in the screenshots. 

Press Ctrl + x to apply and start the system. After downloading, you will need to execute the password reset commands:

#chroot /sysroot
#passwd root
#touch /.autorelabel

 For Centos 6

#passwd root
