Default Username and Password

I installed Portainer as root on a Webmin administered Fedora system, but trying to log in as root is not working. I see no info about default usr:pwd.

How do I solve this?

Hi @SecCon,

there is no default password for portainer. When you deployed portainer it asks you to set an admin password on first launch.

If you have forgotten it try delete the portainer container and its volume, then deploy again

or using this tool https://github.com/portainer/helper-reset-password for reset portainer admin password

Well, it is obviously expecting some set password… Will try the reset

No, wont work.

How do I even now there is a user “admin”…

[root@fedora1 ~]# docker container stop portainer
portainer
[root@fedora1 ~]# docker run --rm -v portainer_data:/data portainer/helper-reset-password
