– restart server;
– edit kernel option (add “init=/bin/bash“) at the end of the kernel line and boot it;
– server is loaded into /bin/bash;

mount -o remount,rw /

change password if you do not know what it is


mount -o remount,ro /

changing to read-only(ro)

– loading server – it starts running fsck and asks for root password. Give root password.
