I installed Odoo on Ubuntu with the .deb package. It created an user "odoo" for the database.

What is the linux default password of that user or how can we find it?

You can change your database user password to using below command.


here you keep your password any text or which you want.

To add to Vishal's answer, to get into the database to be able to run the above command. First run $ sudo -u postgres psql from the command line of your server - This logs you into the database as the "Database Administrator" because the postgres user has what is called a "Trust Relationship" with the PostgreSQL database
