Find application credentials

Find credentials using the Bitnami Launchpad

Your default credentials become available once you create a cloud server. To find them, follow these steps:

  • Browse to the Bitnami Launchpad for 1&1 and sign in if required using your Bitnami account.
  • Select the “Virtual Machines” menu item.
  • Select your cloud server from the resulting list.
  • The “Application Info” section in the left panel contains the credentials for your instance. The password is hidden by default but will be displayed in plain text when the “Show” button, adjacent to the password input, is clicked.

    Server credentials

Find credentials using the 1&1 Control Panel

Administrator username

Administrator password

IMPORTANT: The server password will not be displayed again, so note it carefully for future reference. Should you later forget it and wish to reset it, you must raise a support request with 1&1.

When creating and deploying a new server, you will have the opportunity to specify a password. This password will be used as the application password. In case you don’t specify a password, a random password will be auto-generated for you.

During the server creation process, a confirmation screen will appear and display the server password.

Server credentials

Find database credentials

Database username

If you started a server (for example, MongoDB or similar) that isn’t a Web application server or your application includes a database server, you can use the default administrator user to log in to the database (for example, root). In the table below you will find the username for the most popular databases:

Database Username
MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB root
PostgreSQL postgres

You can find more information for each specific server in our documentation.

Database password

The database password is the same as the administrator password you use to log in to your application.
