I can't login to newly created site1.localhost in ERPNext

I installed ERPNext using following commands.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frappe/bench/develop/easy-install.py
python3 easy-install.py --prod --email your@email.tld

Now I can open the site on https://site1.localhost/#login.

But I can’t seem to log in as it does not seem to recognize my email id when I click on forget password. I had not set up any password explicitly while installing. I tried various generic combinations like “Administrator” for username and “admin” for password.

I would really appreciate it if someone can help me out on this.

Hi @amol11talekar

This is from the Readme.md of Frappe/bench in Github

The script will generate MySQL root password and an Administrator password for the Frappe/ERPNext instance, which will then be saved under $HOME/passwords.txt of the user used to setup the instance. It will also generate a new compose file under $HOME/<project-name>-compose.yml .

check your user home folder for the password.txt file

Hi @amol11talekar,

If you want to set/reset the password of the administrator then please apply it.

bench --site [sitename] set-admin-password [password]

Thank You!


Yes found it.

I was installing it on Windows 10 so I didn’t find it in the Home directory.
But it was there.

I can now login to it.
Thank you for your help.
