Admin Tasks: First Login

When you install a fresh copy of Angelfish, the application has the default config settings.

This article provides a list of settings to update the first time you login to a fresh Angelfish installation as an admin.

Immediately after installation, the only User account on the system is the admin account.

Username: admin
Password: Angelfish123


User Accounts are managed in Global - Users.

1) Create an Account for Yourself
  • Click the New button
  • Enter your details and choose Global Admin
  • Click the Save button

2) Update Admin Account Password
  • Select the admin User
  • Enter the new password twice in the appropriately-named fields
  • Click the Save button when finished
  • Write the new password somewhere!

If you forget the password for the admin account, it can be reset - you'll need to open a support ticket however.


Click Global - Settings to access these options.
