The FastX admin is a linux user on the system.  The password is the password of the user on the system.  There may come a time, when you do not know who is the admin user (users) and you must reset the account.  Follow these steps to reset the account

  1. Create a file /usr/lib/fastx/var/config/override.json

        "_id": "config/user/admin", 
        "users": ["__YOUR_NEW_ADMIN_USER__"]
