Users will be able to change the passwords for these accounts during the first boot configuration process, where they can add an email address for the Wordpress 'admin' account and initialize the default TurnKey hub services.

At the end of the first boot setup process, you will see the default IP addresses and ports for accessing the Wordpress installation, as well as the web shell, SSH, SFTP, phpMyAdmin and Webmin components.
