    spamming random passwords wasn't the most elaborate way to find out but it worked! Also when someone googles this it comes up pretty high in the search engine so I hope I've saved some people time in the future :) Commented Feb 6, 2016 at 23:10

and had to spam passwords in until I got it right

the user name and password is mentioned in the official website

root password : centos


if it changes in the future, the change will be in the official website.

    It was not mentioned on the site in 2016 which is clearly why this post has so many upvotes. Lol as if you down voted me for that. Well done 👏🏾 Commented May 23, 2019 at 14:17
