Modify the default administrator password

For security reasons the master password is randomly generated during the installation of the application. To find the master password, view the /opt/bitnami/apps/odoo/conf/odoo-server.conf configuration file and search for the line below, which contains the password:

admin_passwd = PASSWORD

To set another password:

  • Edit the /opt/bitnami/apps/odoo/conf/odoo-server.conf file:

      $ sudo nano /opt/bitnami/apps/odoo/conf/odoo-server.conf
  • Modify the line below and replace the PASSWORD placeholder with your desired password:

      admin_passwd = PASSWORD
  • Restart the Apache server:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart apache

NOTE: The configuration file name changed since the Odoo 10 version was released. If you are using a prior version, the configuration file is at /opt/bitnami/apps/odoo/conf/openerp-server.conf.
