One aspect of Agnes Waypoints that users may find a bit complicated at first is understanding the different accounts (and associated passwords) that you can manage as part of your participation in the project. This article outlines the types of accounts that you are likely to have, what they are for, and how you go about resetting passwords on each of them.
When you first login in to Agnes Waypoints, an account will be generated that provides you with access to your slice of the Agnes Waypoints Web server. You will access this account to complete the following types of tasks:
You will likely access this space infrequently. Once you have installed applications on your site, you'll mostly work through your Application Accounts (see below).
Every time you install a new application in cPanel, an Administrator Account for that application will be created. You will likely use these accounts very often – every time you need to log in to your application to manage the associated Web site, you will use your application account.
For example, if you install WordPress to manage your Web site, every time you need to add content to WordPress, change your theme, approve comments, etc. you will use this account to log in.
Usually, you will be given the opportunity to choose the user ID and password for that account. We recommend choosing something that you are likely to remember but that is strong and secure.
Upon installation, you will likely receive an email confirming the user ID and password combination you chose. It will also have information about how to access the log in page for that application. You may wish to make sure you don't delete this message.
Depending on the application you're working with, managing and resetting the password for this account will vary. If you've used Installatron to install the application, however, you can always review the account credentials:

In addition to the three account types outlined above, there are a few other kinds of accounts you may have as part of Agnes Waypoints:
