Resetting Your Password

DreamHost Control Panel

It’s easy to reset your DreamCompute password in the DreamHost Control Panel.

  • Go to the DreamCompute page in the control panel.
  • Click the “Reset My Password” link under your Tenant ID and Username.
  • Your new password will be displayed at the top of the page. Please note that a may take a few minutes for the change to take affect.

DreamCompute Dashboard

You can change your password using the DreamCompute dashboard. Go to Settings -> Change Password, in the DreamCompute Dashboard, enter your current password and your new password.


Use Keystone Client to Reset Your Password

DreamCompute utilizes the Keystone component of OpenStack for authentication and identity management. You can reset your password using the Keystone API client.

You can use the Keystone command-line client to change your password. This assumes you already have the OS_PASSWORD variable set via the OpenStack RC file.

[user@localhost]$ keystone password-update --new-password  <new-password>

Don’t have the Keystone client? The OpenStack wiki has good instructions for installing it (and the rest of the clients).

API Access

If you don’t already have an OpenStack RC file downloaded from the Access & Security section, you can create your own.

export OS_AUTH_URL=
echo "Please enter your OpenStack Password: "

Set the variables.

[user@localhost]$ source


[user@localhost]$ .

Type in your current password when prompted.
