How do I know if I am a root user in Linux?
Where is root directory in Linux? The root directory is the topmost level of the system drive. The home directory is a subdirectory of the root directory. It is denoted by a slash ‘/’. It is denoted by ‘~’ and has path “/users/username”.
What is the root password Linux? By default root does not have a password and the root account is locked until you give it a password. When you installed Ubuntu you were asked to create a user with a password. If you gave this user a password as requested then this is the password you need.
What if I forgot root password in Linux? Enter the following: mount -o remount rw /sysroot and then hit ENTER. Now type chroot /sysroot and hit enter. This will change you into the sysroot (/) directory, and make that your path for executing commands. Now you can simply change the password for root using the passwd command.
