To change the password for the admin account, run LiveConfig with the argument --init. The new password has to be submitted with the environment variable LCINITPW. A (new) password for the SOAP API can be set with the environment variable LCINITSOAP.

Initialization/resetting of these passwords only works as long as the login for the main user is admin and its contact data is System Administrator.

Example:

#> LCINITPW=PaSsWoRd /usr/sbin/liveconfig --init
/usr/sbin/liveconfig: LiveConfig initialization; using configuration from /etc/liveconfig/liveconfig.conf
/usr/sbin/liveconfig: Database driver loaded: SQLite (3.7.9)
/usr/sbin/liveconfig: Password updated successfully.
