How to change password and restart code-server in Kubernetes?

Hi, I was following this tutorial to install code-server on K8s.
I’m wondering how I can update the deployment with a new password and restart code-server to use that password?

  • You have to restart all Docker containers. $ docker restart $(docker ps -a -q)
    Check the nodes status after you performed step 1 and 2 on all nodes (the status is NotReady) $ kubectl get nodes.
    Restart the node.
    Check again the status (now should be in Ready status)
    i hope this will help.
    best regards

@huydhoang You can do the following to update the password:

  1. edit code-server.yaml with the new password
  2. kubectl apply -f code-server.yaml

Think different and code well,


  • This is the correct answer. I also figured it out today. My problem was simply to understand the basics of Kubernetes, then use kubectl apply -f to update my deployment.
