How to change the PostgreSQL database passwords
This article applies to:
- Acronis Cyber Files
During the installation of Acronis Cyber Files (activEcho) a third-party software PostgreSQL is installed. There are two accounts that are related to PostgreSQL:
- the service account
- the database account
If you need to change the database account password, follow the steps below.
- On the machine where PostgreSQL is installed invoke Windows Services (Start-Run -> services.msc). Right-click on the Apache Tomcat 7.0 Tomcat7 and activEcho Repository services, and select Stop.
- Open pgAdmin, use your current password to authenticate.
- Highlight the PostgreSQL 9.2 line in the left side of the pgAdmin.
- Click on File menu and select the option Change password.
- Once the password is changed, navigate to:
Acronis Cyber Files: C:\Program Files (x86)\Acronis\Access\Access Server\ and edit file named acronisaccess.cfg. Enter the new password in the line "DB_PASSWORD ="
activeEcho: C:\Program Files (x86)\Group Logic and edit the file named activEcho. Enter the new password in the line "DB_PASSWORD ="
- Start the activEcho Repository and Apache Tomcat 7.0 Tomcat7 services.
If you need to save the configuration file changes to your desktop, then drag the updated configuration file into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Group Logic\activEcho Server\" to replace the existing file.
