How to change password


I understand how to reset the password by reinstall it and keep the existing data, but my case is I remember the password but want to change it.
Is there any way to do this without following the password reset procedure?


This is currently the only way to change a password.

Thanks, @start9dave.

I went through the reset password process but was never presented with the option to select “Recover”. When the server reboots I’m only presented with a login screen. I’m running the nonfree iso.

I’m running this on my own machine. It’s an old Core i7. Everything runs fine but I’m new to this and chose a crappy password while I was experimenting. Beyond starting from scratch is there any other way to change the password?

Our apologies, a bug was introduced in this version and will be fixed in a forthcoming release - see this reply
