    Hi, I'm totally new working with this software.  I have an OPT installation on Red Hat 8 but the system was installed by another administrator that doesn't work here. I need to create and modify some user accounts but I cannot do it becuase I don't have admin rights. Please could you tell me how can I refresh the password?

     
    • To modify the admin password, simply access it directly in the underlying MySQL database (to which you must have the admin password.)

      If you don't have the MySQL Admin password, then you need the root password of the UNIX/Linux system on which it is installed, and perform a password recovery on the MySQL first.
