SSH access

The password for the rails user is available in your control panel for 7 days after provisioning. Please remember to take a note of the password. If you'd like to start poking around straight away, ssh in like this:

ssh rails@username-001.vm.brightbox.net

You can run root commands using sudo (you'll be prompted for your password again):

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

We recommend that you change your rails user password. More information on SSH is available here, including help on installing an ssh key for passwordless access.
