created VM with PW from Bitnami OVA, seems to be "installed", can't log in as admin

Recommended Posts

The Minimal Site works fine, but if I try to login as admin, I have no idea what the credentials are.

I did not do the "install" process myself. The OVA came with everything set up, but there's no mention of the PW admin credentials being set to some initial value.

Wondering if anyone else has tried the Bitnami OVA and if there's a simple answer.

Generally the username and password are shown on the terminal, on top of the shell in the disclaimer at the end of the installation typically giving you the scheme, IP and the credentials.

Try user asย usernameย and bitnamiย as password.

I've tried that. And many other combos. I did not install PW, so I never saw any info "post-install". It came already installed, inside the OVA package.

When I connect to the VM, I can log in to the prompt using the (changed) user bitnami credentials. But if I open the PW Minimal Site in a browser, and try to log in as admin...

I also posted this question on the bitnami forum. Maybe someone over there has the key.

Nope, you were right -- I just had to re-login to the console, and there it was right there.


Thanks again,

      Small annoyance: I get a horizontal scrollbar in UIkit admin area - or actuallyย Admin Theme Boss based onย Uikit 3. I tried to fix it with CSS, but had trouble isolating/targeting it and don't want to mess with module or core files. I think this issue has been reported before. Is there a recommended fix?ย

      I have a client who is reporting that in the last couple of days they can no longer login to their site with their normal browser (Chrome). Using another browser or an incognito window works.
      I've tried logging into the site using the same login details in my usual browser (Firefox) and have had no problems.
      The site is a membership site and today other members are reporting the same problem.
      The site is runningย 3.0.148 and has the session handler DB and login throttle modules installed. It was recently upgraded to 3.x from 2.x. But no changes have been made to the site between the time when they were able to login OK and when the problem started happening.

      I don't have any fontawesome icons in the admin section. Not sure what's wrong. They used to appear. I've tried all the user profiles and they're gone in all of them.
      Using the browser inspector tool, I see this message:
      Access to font at 'https://www.domain.com/wire/templates-admin/styles/font-awesome/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.ttf?v=4.7.0' from origin 'http://domain.com' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.
      I'm not sure why this is occurring or how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.ย

      Getting a little deeper into the ProcessWire state-of-mind here. I seriously think I wouldn't have come back to webdev if it wasn't for this wonderful little gem of a CMS.
      I have an "Options" field added to all users on a site. If the user has anything other then "default" selected, I would like to show a permanent message in the admin like the one in the screenshot, only so that the user can't close it. As a friendly reminder that he changed that option from default to something crazy ๐Ÿ™‚
      I've read up on how to send messages to users, but where would I hook into to make this show up all the time in the backend?
      Thanks in advance!

      Here's a small new module that adds a "Manage tags" button to the template list, just like the field list already has.
      Easily add, remove and change tags for your templates.
