Thread: Is it possible to reset the password for a specific user?

    Is it possible to reset the password for a specific user?

    I forgot my password and reset it by restarting hitting e and replacing the 'linux' line with the usual command.
    That only works for root. I know the username but how do I change the password for it?

    Try to login as a root user or you may try this below:
    sudo passwd [username]
