How to reset passwords for your Premium Seedbox services

Tired of getting errors when you try to log in and use any service? Reset your password now!

Updated over a week ago


In this tutorial, you will learn how to change your service's default password.

There are two methods that you can use to reset your password for a service:

  1. sudo changeseedboxpass

    **This is a custom utility that requires SSH access

1. WebUI - Services Page via Client Area

To change the password for a given service:

  1. Show Password (Reset) - Click the (Reset) button

  2. Enter the desired password

  3. This is an optional step to reset ALL your installed services with the new password.

  4. Finally, click the Reset button to complete the password reset.

Note: We can not display a custom password if you reset it yourself. We urge you to save it to your password manager or write it down on paper to remember it.

If you need to reset your password to the default setting:

Note: You are resetting the passwords for all services with the method shown above. However, this change is never reflected on the WebUI.

Simply put:

From all the installed services that have the Reset option available, you can either

  1. Reset the password for that individual service

  2. Reset the passwords of all the services you access through a WebUI.

You are free to enter a different password; you can change the passwords for each individual service rather than for all. Do whatever you want; you can always reset it later.

Also, if you want a new password in your Client Area, just let us know via Chat, and we'll update it.

2. Through SSH (from the terminal)

Step 1

First, we'll need SSH access to the seedbox. If you’re not sure how please follow this guide: How to connect to your Seedbox via SSH.

Step 2

In the SSH console, only type the following command

sudo changeseedboxpass

Step 3

A little graphical utility will load. From the list, select the service for which you want to change your password and press the Enter key

Step 4

After changing the desired password, you should now see a message that confirms that the password of your desired service was successfully changed

After you change your password, click “OK” and exit the application.

Step 5

Exit the SSH console by closing the terminal window or typing exit. Your desired service password is now successfully changed, go ahead and try to log into it with your new password.

I don't know what to do next...
