At Chmura, if you want to change all of your passwords so that only you have the keys to your server, effectively locking us out, that’s fine with us. There’s only one door, and its all yours.
Please note that locking out the tech staff is not
necessarily the fastest way to receive support. If we cant get into your server, well, then we really can’t get into your server, even if you ask us to, without ‘forcing the lock,’ and no one wants that. So, please, if you want to be able to just drop
us a ticket so that we can install/tweak for you while you’re not around, keep us up to date on your password changes, or at least give us the relevant new ones when making service requests. We promise that we take your privacy and security as seriously
as you do. Seriously.
That being said, you actually have four passwords, your user account password, your apache/web password. connection password to VNC, and your subsonic password.
Three of these when your server is first created are
the same, but changing one doesn't change the other.
To change them, from ssh/putty or terminal/vnc:
Your Linux or account password is used for logging in via ssh, via ftp, via X2Go, or to your account once you are connected to VNC.
It is easy to change, just execute the 'passwd' command. enter your old password, then your new one (twice).
All of our Linux accounts have sudo capability, there is not a separate root password. And for security reasons, recommend against putting
a password on root.
Web/Apache password, there are controlled by apache and encrypted in a separate file. Execute this command:
sudo htdigest -c /etc/apache2/passwords [DOMAIN] [username]
then enter your new password.
is also (without the create option, -c ) add another web user
sudo htdigest /etc/apache2/passwords [DOMAIN] [username]
The Domain is either "gods" or "Welcome" depending on the version of your template, you'll see the domain when trying
VNC connection password, to prevent people from just connecting to VNC and watching what is happening on the shared console, we put a password on just connecting to your server. If no one is there, you'd need the additional login
To change this:
sudo x11vnc -storepasswd /etc/x11vnc.pass
and you'll be prompted to enter the new password.
Finally there is the subsonic password, which you change under subsonic, in settings->users
user password, and the password to the admin account are the same
Any issues don't hesitate to ask.
