password recovery

Apr 22, 2010 at 8:30 PM

Didn't see an answer anywhere....

I unfortunately don't have a clue as to what I set either my account or the admin password to. Any ideas to fix?

Would it be possible to make a new account, go in to the DB and set the roles to match mine/the main admin, and then log on with that account to reset passwords?

thanks.

If you use XML provider and you are the only user, you can replace app_data/users.xml with new one (from source or downloaded web project) and then login as admin/admin.

thanks for the reply. How do I know if I use XML provider?

I am the only user, and this was a new install using 1.6.

never mind. as luck would have it, i actually apparently knew at the time i hadn't found a good place to document the password, and saved it to a hidden txt file on the server. problem solved.
