Changing your Darwin / Quicktime Streaming Server Password
Many people may not realize that if you install apple's "public source" "Darwin Streaming Server":http://developer.apple.com/darwin/projects/streaming/ on to a mac running a normal version of OSX (not server), it really seems to install the exact same "Quicktime Streaming Server":http://www.apple.com/quicktime/streamingserver/ software that comes with OSX Server (minus some UI tools). Well I found this out earlier this year when I installed DSS on my powerbook to play with streaming content to a Nokia 6620. I subsequently forgot that it was installed on my powerbook until tonight when I wanted to run phpMyAdmin and I was getting errors because... QTSS has been running this whole time (oops). Of course I didn't remember what my username or password was for the QTSS, and I found that it was quite a pain to hunt town how to change it (doesn't seem to be in the docs from apple), so I will post the method here for anyone else with this problem. Open a terminal and enter:
sudo cat /Library/QuickTimeStreaming/Config/qtgroupsYou will see something like:
admin: yourQTSSuserNow to change the password enter:
sudo qtpasswd yourQTSSuserYou may now go to http://localhost:1220 with your new password and carry on.
