SFTPGo NS8 Forgotten admin password

NethServer Version: 8
Module: NGINX
on the SFTPGo installed on the NS8, I lost the password and would like to understand if there is any way to reset or change it.
Have any of you had to do this? is there a procedure?


Hi and welcome!

Good question, I can not answer, but let’s see if there somebody knows.

Again, welcome and enjoy!

do you want to tell me to read the guide?

this is the direct link: Change admin password | SFTPGo

now I try
Thank you

you are the first one, maybe we could have a look, no time yet

We could require to let an email to reset the admin password

you have too high expectations.
I’m not an expert.
I tried reading but I can’t use the APIs that are described in the guide.
it explains how to create queries to change password but I must have the old password.
Did I do something wrong in my search?
If I have to modify the proposed code, I’m not able, sorry

podman exec -ti sftpgo sh
