Reset Password?


#1

Got WebODM up and running a few days ago. I am new to the opensource space but the instructions and videos online were able to point me in the right direction, and I feel accomplished in getting this to run. I created a password on start up. Apparently I forgot the password or it is no longer working. Is there any way to reset the password? It has me enter the email i registered and says an email was sent with instructions to reset the password, but an email never comes (ckecked all possible spam, junk, ect) Or remove the program completely and reinstall and create a new password? Thanks in advance for your help.
Sincerely,
A Noob

Sure thing, just run:

./webodm.sh start && ./webodm.sh resetadminpassword newpass

The password will be newpass.

Similar scenario here too… Got WebODM up and running a few days ago using WebODM Manager. I created a password on startup. Apparently, I forgot the password or it is no longer working. Is there any way to reset the password? It has me enter the email I registered and says an email was sent with instructions to reset the password, but an email never comes (checked all possible spam, junk, etc)… I use a Mac and have tried to run the above code in Terminal but to no avail. At a loss as to what to do know… Thanks in advance for your help.

I am unable to reset my password this morning as well. If I use terminal to run the code I get this…

C:\Users\glenn>./webodm.sh start && ./webodm.sh resetadminpassword newpass
‘.’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

You need to use a cygwin prompt (https://www.cygwin.com/) to run bash scripts (this is the one used by Docker Quickstart Terminal on Windows 7). If you’re on Windows 10 you’ll have to download it.

@MartynJones make sure you are typing the command correctly (and from the correct directory). What error are you getting when you type it from the MacOS terminal?

I downloaded Cygwin and get this when I run the code

glenn@OfficeComputer ~
$ ./webodm.sh start && ./webodm.sh resetadminpassword newpass
-bash: ./webodm.sh: No such file or directory

@G_Troyer you need to navigate to the directory where you installed WebODM before issuing the command.

Also note that if you used WebODM Manager, you don’t need to type commands. Just go to the maintenance panel of WebODM Manager and press the reset password button.

Thanks pierotofy, I was trying to reset the password through the webodm tab in my browser. Password reset :slight_smile:

Yes I apologize about that. It’s a bit confusing. I have opened an issue this morning to help reduce confusion in one of the next releases: https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/WebODM/issues/446
