Introduction

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

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

  1. Client Area through the WebUI

  2. Through SSH, by using the changeseedboxpass custom utility

1. Through the WebUI

Simply click on the Reset button on the right of the service and you will be able to enter the password and change it.

Note: We can't currently display a new password if you change it yourself, due to some limitations, So, in that case, you'll have to save it in your password manager or write it down on a piece of paper to remember it.

Recommended: That is why, if you don't have a compelling reason to change the current password (if it hasn't been compromised), and you simply can't log in to a service, we recommend that you reuse the old password and reset it for one or all services, as shown below.

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

So, just to make this clear: 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 to have a new password in your Client Area, just let us know via Chat and we'll update it for you.

2. Through SSH (from the terminal)

Step 1

The first step to do is to connect to your Seedbox using SSH. If youโ€™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 any password, you should now see a message that confirms that the password of your desired service was successfully changed

After you changed your password just click โ€œOKโ€ 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.
