unfortunately we've lost our admin password for grafana.
Does anyone of you have an idea how to reset the password?
When I am trying to issue the command: "grafana-cli admin reset-admin-password admin"
I'll get the following message: "Grafana-server Init Failed: Could not find config defaults, make sure homepath command line parameter is set or working directory is homepath"
Reset via email is also not possible.
We've done the installation like it is described in the Quick Start Guides of Christopher Madden.
See The Solution
I've found the solution.
Here's what I did:
1. Install sqlite3
server> sudo apt-get install sqlite3
2. login to the database
server> sudo sqlite3 /var/lib/grafana/grafana.db
3. reset the admin password to "admin"sqlite> update user set password = '59acf18b94d7eb0694c61e60ce44c110c7a683ac6a8f09580d626f90f4a242000746579358d77dd9e570e83fa24faa88a8a6', salt = 'F3FAxVm33R' where login = 'admin';sqlite> .exit
Now you can login with
username: admin and
Finally change your admin password.
