How Changing Your root Password and SSH Port Affects ServerPilot

After the initial installation, ServerPilot does not depend upon SSH or your root password in any way, so you may change the SSH port, disable password authentication, etc., without interfering with the service.

The default ServerPilot firewall only allows incoming ports 22, 80, and 443, so you will need to customize the firewall if you change your SSH port.
