    Changing root password in Interserver dashboard is not working. I make the change and wait the requested time and the server does not update.

    I’ve noticed it’s been this way since 2017 and no one at Interserver has fixed it. How sloppy…

    I intend to cancel my VPS if no one answers my support.

      If you are changing VPS root password then you need to change it by accessing SSH of the VPS, or we can help you to change the password.
