comment How to access a server via serial port?
@artaxerxe I can't think of anything that's "based" on the root password, but this is nonetheless an approach for repairing/doing maintenance, and when you've done that, you reboot into normal mode again (single-user mode is not a normal operating mode in which you should be running your server for long term). If you regularly need (shell) access to your server, you should create a user with the privileges you need, so that you f.ex. can login remotely from your client machine... This is pretty Linux/Unix basics; you should read up on this!

Nothing else than what you manually change will be changed (I think). Just reboot into "normal" mode when you're finished "repairing" :)

@artaxerxe See my answer below. Other than that, maybe re-tag your question with CentOS rather than Ubuntu, since your question regards your server and not your client machine...

Why not solve your problems via a monitor and keyboard connected to your server?

comment How do I make a DNS record for only one subdomain and forward the rest?
I don't understand why using root hints reduces security (your last paragraph), could you please clarify? Other than that, helpful answer :-)

Thank you! :-) This is one possible solution. I also found another; PAM scripting -- see my own answer.
