How to change password of admin / user?

Hi, I want to change the PW of default user

Maybe @Dmitriy could just refresh our memories on the precise procedure.

AS you already have admin user you need to remove it from file system.

hi Dmitry

Can you pls explain the steps to change the admin username and password without impacting existing accounts - as its not clear to me and would seem to many others. works in my current setup even though in my I have a different admin email and admin pass word setup.

First way:

  1. Stop server;
  2. Find admin@...user file and remove it;
  3. Manually open json with user you want to make admin and set “isAdmin” to true.
  4. Start server;

If there is no “isAdmin”=true users admin from files will be created.


No longer used.
