Change privileged account passwords¶
Steps to change privileged account passwords
Some companies have specific policies regarding passwords.
# Change unix password from root account: $ password [enter new password] [retype new password to confirm] # Change *mysql* password: $ mysqladmin --user=root -p password [new\_password] enter password: [enter old password]
# Change *unix* password from **codendiadm** account: $ password [enter new password] [retype new password to confirm] # Change mysql password: mysqladmin --user=codendiadm -p password [new\_password] enter password: [enter old password] $ vim /etc/tuleap/conf/database.inc # change **codendiadm** password
- The “admin” account is the first user that is created when a new Tuleap site is created.
- The “admin” account is used as an “administrator” for orphaned projects.
- The “admin” unix account is not a privileged account.
- If you have defined other site administrators, you might as well suspend the “admin” account (thus, you won’t need to update its password).
