Unable to get wp admin dashboard password
Created a wp server via marketplace on Linode. But I could not able to get a password for my wp-admin dashboard. If I enter the following command cat /root/.linode_credentials.txt to get an automated generated password on the Lish console but it shows that no such file or directory. Even though I used the password reset option using mail, I didn't receive any mail for password resetting. Please provide me a solution to get a wp-admin dashboard password.
You most likely may need to wait a little longer for your Linode to be fully deployed. WordPress can take about 5 minutes or more to finish provisioning.
I ran through our guide on Deploying WordPress through the Linode Marketplace. Throughout this process, I watched the WordPress installation through the Lish Console to make sure that the installation had completed.
Once I saw Installation Complete in Lish, I tried:
From there I was able to obtain the necessary crendentials.
I recommend spinning up a new WordPress app from the Marketplace and track it's progress through the Lish Console. When you notice the installation is done in Lish, you will be able to access the credentials and then continue on with the rest of the guide.
I am having the same problem, been waiting since 30 minutes now. Should I wait for more?
@cicwill sir, I tried the command one time I got the automatically generated credentials by doing a root login. But now I have created a new instance on Linode and now I could not able to get the credentials by using cat /root/.linode_credentials.txt this command. Please give me a solution sir.
The issue that was causing problems with our Marketplace applications was resolved back on July 20th. I just spun up a test WordPress server through the Marketplace to check if I received the credentials with
cat /root/.linode_credentials.txt after it was finished installing and they came up without a problem:
$ cat /root/.linode_credentials.txt wp_admin_user:tlambert wp_db_user:tlambert wp_db_name:wordpress mysql_root_password:<long-secret password> wp_db_pass:<long-secret password> wp_admin_pass:<long-secret password>
I suggest trying to create another WordPress server and waiting 5-10 minutes to ensure it has installed correctly. If that still doesn't work, you may want to contact the Support Team through a Support Ticket to let them know what you're experiencing.
Why use the marketplace's buggy system? WP is easy to install once you have a LAMP stack, which is also easy to install. There are a zillion websites on how to do it, including one done by the Linode staff.
The problem persists until September 30, 2023, I have installed WordPress and Woocomerce 10 times from the linode´s marketplace and it never gives me the credentials with the following command indicated in the documentation
It's a waste of time
@coffe_server - that sounds like a really frustrating experience. I just ran some tests of our WordPress Marketplace with both a LAMP and LEMP stack and ran into an error in one out of roughly 10 deploys. I doubt that you and I used that same input variables so that may have something to do with it. Either way, I brought it up with the Marketplace team and they are looking into it further.
There are some troubleshooting steps you can take to see what may have gone wrong during the deployment process of your Marketplace app. Specifically, checking the
/var/log/stackscript.log file will allow you to see the installation log of the app. If you can share that information with us, either here or with the Linode Support Team that would help us with the investigation.
Hello, same problem here.
I created multiple instances of wordpress with marketplace but always :
cat: /root/.linode_credentials.txt: No such file or directory
Could we have a solution ?
Solution find here : https://wordpress.org/documentation/article/reset-your-password/#:~:text=to%20your%20website.-,To%20Change%20Your%20Password,Click%20the%20Update%20User%20button.,-Your%20new%20password
Create your new md5 password :
- copy your new password converti on md5
SSH connexion to your linode server
Run the sql command
"mysql -u root -p" (log in to MySQL)
Enter the root password of your server
"use (name-of-database)" (select WordPress database)
"show tables;" (you’re looking for a table name with “users” at the end)
“SELECT ID, user_login, user_pass FROM (name-of-table-you-found);”
2 options to update your database :
“UPDATE (name-of-table-you-found) SET user_pass=”(MD5-string-you-made)” WHERE ID = (id#-of-account-you-are-reseting-password-for);” (actually changes the password)
Update (name-of-table-you-found) set user_pass="(MD5-string-you-made)" where user_login="(your admin user)"
“SELECT ID, user_login, user_pass FROM (name-of-table-you-found);” (confirm that it was changed)
(type Control-D to exit mysql client)
