How to edit default admin credentials

Posted November 3, 2021 81 views

I followed tutorial “Getting started after deploying Django”
And i found that:

Step 3: Play in the admin area

The standard Django admin area is accessible at /admin. The login and password are stored in the DJANGO_USER* values you see when you call cat /root/.digitalocean_passwords while logged in over SSH.

The question - how can i change it values?
Now i edited file and it is no results of this - login and password are old

Hey there!

The file that contains those login credentials is actually just a text file. Editing that file wouldn’t change the password or user for the admin area. This would be done through the admin area of Django. Django Admin

Hope it helps!
