Bitnami OS Password Reset

Configure the GRUB boot loader to boot directly to the Bash shell in read-write mode as the root user. To do this:
    Boot the virtual machine and immediately press the Esc key to load the boot menu.
    Type e to edit the boot commands.
    Navigate down the menu until you are on the line starting with kernel.
    Type e to edit that line.


    (...) ro quiet splash


    (...) rw init=/bin/bash

    Save the change with the Enter key.

    Boot the system with the b key.

    NOTE: The changes made are temporary and will be reset after a reboot.

Once the system boots to a Bash shell, run the command below and enter a new password when prompted:

passwd bitnami

Reboot the virtual machine.

You should now have access to the bitnami user account with the new password.
