Could not find admin login password

  • Hi,
    I had installed nodebb newly on ubuntu 14.04 along with mongodb.
    During the setup process no option was given to setup admin user/login. But, it looks to have created an admin with username "admin" but the password is unknown.
    Could you please help how I can get the admin password?

    @smogulur the security of NodeBB makes it impossible to retrieve a password. This is by design. If you haven't gotten too far as far as installation goes, you should drop the database you chose and restart.



Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
