Nagios Fusion - Resetting The nagiosadmin Password

Problem Description

You do not know the password for the nagiosadmin account and need to reset it.


Resetting The Password

Open an SSH or direct console session to your Nagios Fusion host and execute the following command:

/usr/local/nagiosfusion/scripts/reset_nagiosadmin_password.php --password=newpassword

Note: If you would like to use special characters in your password, you should escape them with "\". For example, if you want to set your new password to be "$new password#", then you can run:

/usr/local/nagiosfusion/scripts/reset_nagiosadmin_password.php --password=\$new\ password\#
