Can't reset the password / login

Software: Octoprint 0.18.0. (the stable 0.17.0 doesn't work on my pi 4)
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 2gb.

I changed the password from "raspberry" according to PRUSA.
I tried to login via Putty with the correct password, it says "Access denied".
Same thing on the Pi itself, "Login incorrect" (barely readable text on pi's screen).

I followed this guide to reset it (Googled: How to reset raspberry pi password).
It says password changed successfully.
Then this guide (Googled: octoprint reset ssh password).
I even tried to format & reinstall the Octopi image, I guess the password isn't stored there because it didn't work either.

Just can't login into it .
Stuck on it for +2 hrs.
Thanks for the help in advance!

Moving this to Single Board Computers, where you may have more luck.

Thanks for moving it to better category..
Anyway, turns out that I am stupid, the username is "pi" not "Pi", wasted on it hours LOL.
We usually leave threads open here, but I can delete this one if you like, as it was a mistake from the beginning.

Let me know and I can do so.

Glad you got it solved.

Most Linux terminal stuff is case sensitive AND it's usually lowercase, unless you made it uppercase - like file names.

For example, if you type "SUDO APT UPDATE" then you'll get a response saying something like "SUDO: command not found".

I suspect most of us have learned that lesson in various frustrating ways, just like you.
I think we all have done that a time or two :cool:
