How to change password of Bahmni/OpenMRS (and securing the server)

A lot of users seem to install Bahmni/OpenMRS and don’t change the DEFAULT admin credentials. This is a serious security risk.

If you are an ADMIN of any Bahmni server, that is being used in Production / QA / Public exposed – please change the admin/superman credentials, to reduce your security risk. Also don’t use default DB credentials.
