Can't change Admin password


#1

We are not able to change the default admin password.
At first we though it was because we had enabled ldap but we have now disabled ldap and we still can’t change it.
With ldap disabled when we attempt to login to grafana with the default admin/admin we are asked to change the password on first use, but we just get the following 403 error. Can anyone help

403 Forbidden

403 Forbidden


nginx/1.12.2

Hi There,

Try updating the config file and see if it helps

/usr/share/grafana/conf/defaults.iniq


#3

I’ve tried editing this file but it does not make any differences.
Grafana seems to be using the /etc/grafana/grafana.ini file for it’s settings.
I’ve set Grafana to debug mode but nothing related appears in the log file either.

Anyone have any idea why we are getting 403 errors when trying to update the admin password or set a user as a Grafana admin?
If we can’t solve this in our NonProd environment then we will have to abandon Grafana altogether.
