Resetting Root Password in Ubuntu

There are a number of references for how to reset your root password in Ubuntu, if you've forgotten it that reference booting into recovery mode. I've found a simple way to do it that only requires a couple of steps.

  1. Enter the following command: sudo passwd root
  2. You will be prompted to enter your new password twice
  3. Enter su root and your new password

DONE! Very short and to the point!
