Admin Website credential issue

Admin Website credential issue



I am trying to get familiar with Magento and the Virtual Box image.

As far as I understand the admin credentials are the one which are shown in the CLI of the VBOx image at start. They dont work, neither I find  anything releated in the docs.


Can anyone indicate me a direction to look at for the credentials?


Thanks in advance!




Re: Admin Website credential issue

Hello @patrickkarc758 

You can reset or get back your credentials by following two methods : 

  • By doing forgot password on the admin screen and adding the email of your admin username
  • You can create a new admin user directly from the command line, here is the command 
    php bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user='tempadmin' --admin-password='tempadmin123' --admin-email='' --admin-firstname='Admin' --admin-lastname='Admin'


Hope it helps !

Re: Admin Website credential issue

Thanks for the hint.

I tried that in the /stack/magento folder, with sudo but without any success.

It states in green, that the user was created, but once I tried the credential on the WEBIF, it keeps me rejected.


May I ask if there is any initial admin user created or if there is anything documented which I can read?
