Where are the login credentials stored?

They are stored in a JSON file located in the root directory of the Shinobi install called super.json. By default the install location should be /home/Shinobi. To modify the file run the following.

nano /home/Shinobi/super.json

You should see the default contents appearing as it does below.

[
    {
        "mail":"[email protected]",
        "pass":"21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3"
    }
]

The login details that are applied by the JSON above are as follows.

Login Address : [email protected]
Password : admin

The password is in MD5. In future it will be SHA1 or something similar. The purpose of using MD5 is simply to make it unreadable to a regular passing human.

Never leave the default credentials. The latest commits will now also ask if the user wants to enable Superuser access during the install process.

After you are done modifying the credentials you must restart Shinobi.
