Find application credentials

Your default credentials become available once you launch an instance. To find them, follow these steps:

  • Log in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Account associated with your instance.
  • Navigate to “Compute -> Instances” and click on the instance you want to retrieve the credentials. The resulting page displays the instances details. Take note of the “Public IP Address” of the instance.

  • Connect through SSH to your server.

  • Open the log file with a text editor:

    $ sudo cat /opt/bitnami/var/log/pre-start.log
  • You will see both the username and password set by default to access your application:

The application credentials are also stored in a standalone file. To obtain the credentials at any time, follow these instructions:

  • Connect to the application through SSH.
  • Run the following command to see your application credentials:

    $ cat ./bitnami_credentials

    If you’re unable to find the above file, use this command instead:

    $ sudo cat /opt/bitnami/var/data/bitnami_credentials/credentials
