[Wapt] default login password wapt console

Actually I installed WAPT on a Windows server 2008 R2 which has WSUS and obviously IIS enabled..

I checked " wapt_password" line and has a very long password with letters and lot of numbers.

Is there a way to make it work on this server? If it's not possible I will install it on another server.

Thank you for your help!

That is (obviously) unexpected.  Which WAPT and Windows Server version do you use?

The password is stored in C:\wapt\waptserver\waptserver.ini (default install).  This file should look like this:

# commented lines
wapt_password=<your obfuscated password>

To manually generate an obfuscated version of your password, run this command (on a single line):

C:\wapt\waptpython.exe -c "import sys, hashlib; print hashlib.sha1(sys.argv[1]).hexdigest()" your_new_password_here

But before modifying anything please make sure that you don't have another web server running.  IIRC some Windows versions ship with IIS activated by default.  This conflict with the embedded Apache server needed for WAPT.
