Find application credentials

The default username for the application is user and the password is randomly generated (in older versions it was typically bitnami). You can obtain these credentials from the server console, above the login prompt, as shown below:

Application credentials

You can also obtain the application username from the application page in our documentation.

If you started a server (for example, MongoDB or similar) that isn’t a Web application server, you can use the default administrator user to log in to the database (for example, root). You can find more information for each specific server in our documentation.

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
