How can I change the standard passwork through start-up script?

+4 votes

for demo purposes, I need to package a proof of concept that uses multichain. I have to use vagrant for an easy setup. if I read it correctly I can change the default network port and the default RPC port at the create stage.

The problem is that the wrapper that I use also needs the RPC user and the RPC password. The user seems to stay the same every time, but the password changes.

Is there is a way to keep configure the password just like the RPC port?

With kind regards,

the password is for the RPC JSON API and is stored in multichain.conf.

You wont be able to connect without a password in the first place in order to change the password.

If your wrapper is a JSON-RPC wrapper then the answer is no. You would have to do this yourself, on the node by changing the file.
