You should update the email address and password.

Administration and Configuration

After install, log in with the default account (password is admin) and click on the "Admin View" link in the upper right. This will take you to the Site administration page (rails_admin). Click on "Preferences" in the left panel and your app name will be listed. Click on the pencil icon to edit preferences.

If you need no more than one group/currency, then uncheck the groups checkbox. The whitelist checkbox determines whether new registrations require manual approval by a system administrator. There are many other options here.

Also listed on the left admin panel are the data types which can be browsed, searched and edited. In addition, there is a "Broadcast emails" link which allows an admin to send an email to those who are active and have allowed these emails in their settings.

In addition to configuration through the web admin interface, outgoing email configuration is done through environment variables including the following.

  • SMTP_SERVER: if this is blank, the heroku install script will use the free sendgrid add-on
  • SMTP_PORT: defaults to 587
  • SMTP_DOMAIN: outgoing emails from the system will have this suffix in the from: field
  • EXCEPTION_NOTIFICATION: a list of email addresses to notify when a code exception occurs
