Self-hosted docker appsmith: what are the initial login details?


I followed the Docker | Appsmith directions but can't log in because I don't have the login details. There was no mention of them in the docker.env file. I'm competent enough to figure out the password algorithm and reset it from the database, but I want to know if there's another way to access it.


The solution requires first creating a login by signing up for an account. Once logged in, the login credentials will be saved and can be used to access the Appsmith dashboard.

To set up Appsmith on a computer, follow the steps outlined in the Docker | Appsmith documentation. Once you navigate to http://localhost, you should see a login page. If this is your first time accessing Appsmith, you will need to sign up for an account by clicking the "Sign Up" button and providing the necessary information.

Once you have signed up and logged in, your login credentials will be stored and you can access the Appsmith dashboard by navigating to http://localhost. If you need to reset your password, you can do so from the Appsmith dashboard or by accessing the database directly.

It's important to note that the login details are not stored in the docker.env file, as they are generated when you sign up for an account. However, after signing up and logging in, you can access your login details from the Appsmith dashboard.
