Unable to login

I had installed grafana and I don’t remember changing the password. So when I am trying to login using the default credentials admin/admin its giving me incorrect username/password. I had not provided any email id so unable to get the password reset link. Please help me out with this issue.

I use MSSQL, not SQLlite. So this won’t work

Try going in to MSSQL and updating the user table with:

update user set password =
salt = ‘F3FAxVm33R’ where login = ‘admin’;

Note: the above is the command you would use for SQLite, but I’m sure MSSQL
can’t be too different. This should reset the “admin” account’s password to

Hey, thanks for your help. But, I was able to reset the password. Just added the grafana cli path in the environment variable → open cmd as administrator → cd to the grafana-cli → write the command: grafana-cli admin reset-admin-password your_new_password. And done!
