Find application credentials

Find credentials using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic Console

You have two options for obtaining your application credentials:

Option 1: Find credentials by checking the System Log on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic Console

IMPORTANT: This password is only available in the system log for the first 24 hours after you first start the instance. We strongly recommend that you note it down immediately on the first boot and save it in a safe place, as you will be unable to access the instance console without it. We also recommend that you change it as soon as possible for security reasons.

To get administrator credentials, select the VM instance in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic Console. On the instance detail page, select the “Logs” option and view the system log. Look for a message in the logs with the administrator username and password.

Server credentials

Option 2: Find credentials by connecting to your application through SSH

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

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 Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic 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.

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.
