I have a big problem with my Linux instance. After restore my backup in a new instance I'm not able to login with my old account/password. Please can you help me? Is it possible to find or change the password of my instance (i-7a5dd530)

You need to set the instance password from the start

I assume that you are talking about your root login password? If you don't set one it will default to a random password AFAIK.
