I want to setup my SSH connection correctly. As many tutorials told me, it is not recommended to use the root account of Ubuntu server. So I would rather use my standard account "Simon" to upload files and transfer terminal commands.
When I run 'sudo su' I am prompted to type the standard password for my user account Simon in order to gain root permissions. I am pretty sure, that instead I should get asked for the root password, shouln't I? How can I fix this?
