Changing Admin Password

Jul 16, 2010 at 10:27 PM

Using Blog Engine 1.6.1.0, I was trying to find a way to change the admin password.  I go to Users - Edit, but it does not allow me to change the password, only the email.  I am using MSSQL to store my entries. 

How can I change the password?  Thanks!

go to the front page after you have logged into the system with admin and at the bottom of the administration widget you will find your answer.

of you can just go to <prot>://<site>/Account/ChangePassword.aspx

replace <prot> with your access protocol and <site> with your url to the root of blogengine.

IE: https://www.myawesomehotblog.com/Account/ChangePassword.aspx

Thanks - I found the Administration box towards the top on the right hand side - password was changed successfully.

I did try the URL, but I did not have a folder in the website called Accounts.

Thanks again!
