Cannot set Lucee server admin password / where is Lucee installed for CommandBox

I have set up CommandBox, and now I would like to configure Lucee server through the /lucee/admin/server.cfm webtool.

When I point my browser to, I see the following page:

I just installed CommandBox with the default engine. Now I am asked to create a password.txt file in the /lucee-server/context/ directory. I cannot find the /lucee-server/context/ directory. Or, am I supposed to create that directory? I did create it and created the password.txt file in it. But when I click the “import file” button in the above screenshot, nothing happens.

Or, with CommandBox, should I use the web tool to configure the Lucee server?

Could anybody please tell me what I should do?

Thanks in advance.
best regards

@liujinliang01 I just added a new answer to that Stack Overflow question that I think is even easier than dealing with that silly txt file.
