Repl.it users can't access root, sorry 😓

@aksubacct
Actually there is no root password, so no way to access root ;)
If you want some softwares, try polygott and install-pkg

@21natzil Makes sense, who knows what we'll do with it?

@HarperframeInc In fact, when you run a repl, you are in a kind of virtual machine, no way to escape it and to break replit ;)

@abc3354 It's a docker container, look in /. You'll find .dockerenv

if / is also known as the default root directory as well as /root then why can i access / but not /root. su is locked by an unknown password and so is runner. ive tried to change permissions for the root directory but you cant. i tried it with all default directories. the only directories iv been able to even acess are /, /home, and /home/runner, and /home/runner/inheritance(this is one i created). i know i had accessed /root before but it was quite some time ago. could they have changed that abilty or did i do it just by accident. you cant access any root directories or files with root perms. man that sucks.

Yeah, I'm trying to use

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/ohmybash/oh-my-bash/master/tools/install.sh)"

to install "Oh My Bash" but it is prompting for password because it is accessing shell file. :(
