Modify the default administrator password

You can modify the CouchDB admin password with these steps:

  • Stop your server.

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop couchdb
  • Edit your /opt/bitnami/couchdb/etc/local.ini configuration file, editing the respective admin password to what you want, in the [admin] section. For example:

      admin = my_new_password
  • CouchDB will take care of hashing your password, so the only thing you need is to start your server again.

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart couchdb
