# How to enter passwords with dollar sign($) in config files I was following the Installation Guide for Ubuntu and is going crazy trying to figure out how to enter passwords containing special characters (especially the dollar sign$) in the various config files.

Double dollar signs apparently works when used in /etc/glance/glance-api.conf:

[keystone_authtoken] ... password = Paw0rd 

but it doesn't work for /etc/nova/nova.conf:

[oslo_messaging_rabbit] ... rabbit_password = Paw0rd
