Q. I've forgotten the administrator password for the InterMapper DataCenter. How can I recover it or create a new one?

A. The password is stored in /config/imdc.db file along with the other InterMapper DataCenter-specific settings. It's encrypted so you can't read it; to reset the password you need to delete that file and go through the first-start wizard again.

  • 1. Stop the InterMapper DataCenter daemon/service: 
    • Windows: Stop the InterMapper DataCenter service using the Windows Services control panel
      Mac OS X: In Terminal, type: sudo /usr/local/imdc/sbin/imdc stop
      Linux: From a command line, type: sudo /etc/init.d/imdc stop

    2. Delete the /config/imdc.db file. The depends upon the platform: 
    • Windows: C:\Program Files\InterMapper\dwf\config\imdc.db
      Mac OS X: /usr/local/imdc/config/imdc.db
      Linux: /usr/local/imdc/config/imdc.db

    3. Restart the InterMapper DataCenter daemon/service: 
    • Windows: Start the InterMapper DataCenter service using the Windows Services control panel
      Mac OS X: In Terminal, type: sudo /usr/local/imdc/sbin/imdc start
      Linux: From a command line, type: sudo /etc/init.d/imdc start


Note: You will lose configuration data specific to InterMapper DataCenter: the password, custom SSL certificate and InterMapper DataCenter logging level. The individual services (IMAuth, IMDatabase, etc.) each have separate files for their own configuration data.
