    You could try seeing how secure your server is...

    Really depends how the server is set-up.

    Who is the server hoster?

    Your pretty screwed if no-one else has access to root....

    1. Do you have physical access to the machine?
    2. Which boot loader are you using?

    If you don't have physical access to the machine, someone at the place you are getting it from will have to go in and reset the password.
