Recently I published an article How to Enable Advanced WordFence Protection on OpenLiteSpeed? Eventually, I realized that some users were trying to access the OpenLiteSpeed/LiteSpeed WebAdmin, but they lacked a password, and I completely missed the instructions for changing the password. As I mentioned in that article, I had intended to include this. However, as I realized later, it is a common need of many users to reset the OpenLiteSpeed/LiteSpeed WebAdmin password as well.
In this article, I will explain how to reset the OpenLiteSpeed/LiteSpeed WebAdmin password from the command line and access port 7080. Follow this few steps process and reset your password.

Step3: Set Password:
Once you run the above command terminal will ask you to set the username, default is admin.
Provide admin and after that, it will ask to set a password for OpenLiteSpeed/LiteSpeed WebAdmin and then confirm that password. In the end, a success message will appear.
All done you can use this password to access OpenLiteSpeed/LiteSpeed WebAdmin on port 7080 now.
