What credentials do I need?

You need two sets of credentials:

  • The application credentials, consisting of a username and password. These credentials allow you to log in to your new Bitnami application.
  • The server credentials, consisting of an SSH username and password. These credentials allow you to log in to your virtual machine using an SSH client and execute commands at the virtual machine console using the command line.

What is the administrator username set for me to log in to the application for the first time?

Username: user@example.com

What is the administrator password?

Password: The administrator password to log in to your application is randomly generated during the first boot. Check the FAQ to learn how to retrieve it.

What SSH username should I use for secure shell access to my application?

SSH username: bitnami

What is my server IP address?

The IP address is displayed on screen at the end of the boot process, but you can check it at any time by running the following command:

$ sudo ifconfig

Check server IP address

How do I get my SSH key or password?

How do I access my application?

Once you have imported your Bitnami Virtual Machine, the IP address for your application is displayed on the virtual machine’s login screen. Access the application via your browser by entering this IP address.
