How to reset EE Password to access EE admin tools


#1

Hello,

When I try to Access admin tools, I realize I forgot username and password, I am quite new to EE, anyway to reset it?

Thanks


#2

Just run ee secure --auth


#3

@nschopra,

thank, this will only change the username and password of EE admin?


#4

Ah! My Bad, didn’t read the query properly. Which specific tool you’re trying to access?


#5

thanks, please check the screenshot:

As mentioned here, EasyEngine admin tools can be accessed using 22222 port. https://example.com:22222. Default Username/Password is easyengine/easyengine. It by any chance that is not working or you don’t know your username/password you can reset them by doing:

sudo ee secure --auth

How to access phpMyAdmin installed with EasyEngine? phpMyadmin is listed under db section in EasyEngine admin tools. So to access phpMyadmin use https://example.com:22222/db/pma/

Where to find MySQL username & Password? Suppose you have run ee stack install. MySQL username and password are stored in .my.cnf file. The Location of file depends on which user runs ee stack install. i.e root@vagrant-ubuntu-trusty-32:~# sudo ee stack install command creates file in home directory of sudo user i.e here in /home/harshad/.my.cnf and root@vagrant-ubuntu-trusty-32:~# ee stack install run with root user creates file at /root/.my.cnf location.

Since EasyEngine v3.3.5, the file .my.cnf isn’t created anymore. Instead, the new location file is /etc/mysql/conf.d/my.cnf.

@nschopra,

On our multisite, there are at least 10 subsites, but if I use “ee site show mysite.com”, it only show some of all subsites, does that mean there is wrong configuration setting? please check blow:

Hi @nschopra

does this commend line support deleting only a sub site?

ee site delete example.com --db

for example:

ee site delete subsiteA.example.com --db

please confirm, thanks.

Hey Alexlii, Glad I could be helpful. Sorry, but I won’t be able to help with any query about Multisite as I have never created one. Also, I am not sure about Redis Clean query. Hope, some expert will be able to answer it.

Tagging @virtubox as he is the one who can answer these for sure.

Sorry for later reply, and thanks so much.
