resolvent

Delete the superset.db database file and reinitialize the database

For example, my current Linux login user name is lane, and my superset.db file is in /home/Lane /. Superset/superset. DB , delete the file:

(superset) [[email protected] ~]$ cd /home/layne/.superset/
(superset) [[email protected] .superset]$ rm -f superset.db 

Then reinitialize the database:

(superset) [[email protected] ~]$ superset db upgrade

Create the admin user again and find that it can be created successfully:

(superset) [[email protected] ~]$ export FLASK_APP=superset
(superset) [[email protected] ~]$ flask fab create-admin
Username [admin]: layne
User first name [admin]: 
User last name [user]: 
Email [[email protected]]: 
Password:
