    Hello I forgot the password for the LOGIN of the Hyperion platform with the Hyperbian system.
    Is it possible to RESET or recover this passowd from the command line via ssh?

    Is there another option?

    Hello Lord Gray, thank you very much for your reply.
    I'm sorry but this is the first installation I have and I still don't understand it very well.

    Code:
    hyperiond -v --resetPassword
    when I insert the following line ... or any other with the command "hyperiond" I get the following message.

    hyperion MAIN: <ERROR> The Hyperion Daemon is already running, abort start.

    Can you help me?
    Thank you.

    You need to stop the running instance first.

    do a
    pkill hyperiond

    and the execute the command again

    pkill: killing pid 532 failed: Operation not permitted

    :unsure::thumbsdown:
    kill hyperion (appears)
    -bash: kill: hyperion: arguments must be process or job IDs

    Then with (hyperiond -v --resetPassword)
    hyperion MAIN: <ERROR> The Hyperion Daemon is already running, abort start.

    Sorry guys, not yet.
    I only have access to the Dashboard if I am in command line with the command

    Code:
    hyperiond --userdata /home/pi/.hyperion
    If i close Putty, the password field will appear on the web page.

    I put "hyperion" in the password

    And appear the message
    ERROR
    No Autorization
