Create Admin Account from Console


I have installed discourse on godaddy cloud servers via bitnami.

What is the equivalent command of “cd /var/discourse” for me ?


My admin account has email set as and I am not able to change the email. so i am not getting email in my inbox (off course because does not exist)

Nothing is working, password reset is also use less now.

There is no way to edit email from admin panel.

The Discourse team can only support the official Docker-based install here – I’d highly recommend that you re-install Discourse using these instructions.


I followed your instruction and now feeling better because things are going smoother than before.

For Bitnami users:

$ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/discourse/htdocs
$ sudo  RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake admin:create

Note that we only support official Docker based installs here, for the record. Don’t want to confuse people and fragment effort.
