After initial password setup, I was able to log in, but now that I have logged out, why am I unable to log in again?

I downloaded and installed Splunk. After the initial password setup, I was able to log in, but now that I have logged out, I am not able to log in again. I am still able to access the online account. I have also tried moving the password file in etc.

Have you changed the admin password ? By default its admin/changeme

If you forgot the admin password, then try this.

You will need to have access to the file system:
- move the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd file to passwd.bak
- restart splunk. After the restart you should be able to login using the default login
