How do I change the external database password

You can change the password the Bitbucket Server uses to connect to an external database, however you don't do this from the Bitbucket Server Administration area – you must follow the procedure described below.

To change the password that Bitbucket Server uses when connecting to an external database:

  1. Stop Bitbucket Server. See Starting and stopping Bitbucket Server.
  2. Get your database administrator to change the password on your database.
  3. Go to your Bitbucket Server home directory.

    Edit the bitbucket.properties file to change the line that looks like: 

    jdbc.password=MY_PASSWORD

    replacing MY_PASSWORD with your new database password.

  4. Restart Bitbucket Server. See Starting and stopping Bitbucket Server.
