How to change my root password

Hello, friend, before we asked somebody to help us to build the website and now all the account and password have been transferred to us. And he asked us to change the root password but I don't know how to do it. Now our website is running normal, I am afraid there will influence our website. So I don't know how to do it. Can somebody help me? Thanks in advance for your help.

You can change the root password on your Linode at any time with the Root Password Reset tool at the bottom of the Rescue tab in the Linode Manager. It will require that your Linode be shut down briefly, but should only take a few minutes.

In the newer Cloud Manager, you can follow these instructions to reset your Linode's root password.
