FreePBX - User,Pass / Reset Pass / PHP Parse error: syntax error

Alright. So I am trying to login to the Web Interface GUI as admin. Maybe I don’t have the correct default user name or password? Can you confirm what the default user and password should be. I know it changes in different distros.

I believe it has been… and I have tried the following -

user: admin
pass: admin


user: admin
pass: password


user: admin
pass: maint


user: maint
pass: password

and I believe also

user: admin
pass: SangomaDefaultPassword

I am guessing I am using the wrong one. I looked at the Nethserver doc’s but didn’t see anything on the default user and password. It possible I’ve over looked it.

I looked here -

But as you see below it doesn’t help

So I did try to do a reset on the admin password for Web Interface GUI, just to see if I could just muscle through it.

When doing the fwconsole unlock xxxxxxxxxxxx I got the following -

So… this is still and issue…

I did try the scl enable rh-php56 -- fwconsole chown but that did not fix the problem I still got this after running it -

Well… I think this may be the last challenge before success…


IIRC the admin password is set after initial configuration of freepbx, there’s no default one.
You can check users/reset the password with following procedure:


@mrmarkuz Thanks you sir! I actually read through that one. But that part didn’t click. I am now able to get in to the Dashboard. I am now having to update. Then comes configuration.

Thanks again!
