Modify the default admin password

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

For security reasons the admin password is randomly generated during the installation of the application. To find the admin password, open the Odoo configuration file to search for the line shown below. It contains Odoo password.

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the Odoo configuration file can be found in the following locations:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/odoo/conf/odoo.conf

  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apps/odoo/conf/odoo-server.conf

admin_passwd = PASSWORD

To set another password, edit the Odoo configuration file and modify the line below (replace the NEW-PASSWORD placeholder with your desired password):

admin_passwd = NEW-PASSWORD
  • Restart all services:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart
