I have forgotten my OctoPi SSH password. Now I want to install X server and browser for touch UI. How can I recover that password without deleting it all to the ground and reinstalling it?

foosel, Project Leader of OctoPrint, helpfully provided a solution just for us:

Turn off the Raspberry Pi and then:

Take the SD card out, put it in a card reader. Create a file octopi-password.txt on it, containing a new password as it's only line. Unmount, boot, login with the new password.

You can do it in Windows, because you need to put it on the Boot partition, the only one that mounts.
