Setting the Root Password on Ubuntu

Frans Doni/ June 21, 2008

There is, generally, no need to use root for Ubuntu, since everything is done via sudo. If you wish, though, you can set the root password by typing:
sudo su

Enter the user password, and then:
passwd

Enter the root password you wish to use. Now, you can log on as root if you wish.
