Hi,

Since 2.0, there is no /admin/install directory and so no resetadminpwd.php, so, how to reset the admin password now?

Here is the wiki solution wich doesn't work with 2.0+ installs

Hi,
You can do it easily if you are abble to manage SQL queries...

I attached a dump with the `lime_users` original table
User:admin
Password: password

Dateianhang:

Dateiname: reset_admin_v2.txt
Dateigröße:2 KB


Note:the version is Version 2.00+ Build 121017..It's not the last build but I suppose that's `lime_users` table structure is the same. In case of doubt make a dump of this table or of the entire database.

Thanks, I just erased my install and re-installed it so I can't test your solution but thanks.

I have a similar case:
Local installation that can't send emails, haven't configured smtp.

I think actually that I remember my login/pw combination, but somehow the login screen always shows the message:

Incorrect username and/or password!

You have exceeded the number of maximum login attempts. Please wait 10 minutes before trying again.

And the 10 minutes are over quite a bit.

10 minutes is pretty good delay for having a beer ;) but in case you need less time you may look at:

application/config/config-defaults.php
(around L 60)
// If the user enters password incorrectly
$config['maxLoginAttempt']    =   3;                // Lock them out after 3 attempts
$config['timeOutTime']        =   60 * 10;          // Lock them out for 10 minutes.

Hi Ben

I saw lot of post from you searching how to reset the password for admin.
But you are always sending us to the same file giving the admin password "password" default one.

But how to change the password with the one we want to update ? Or will the system ask us a for new password as it is the default one ?

If not, do you already have a script allowing to generate a new string for the password with the one we want ?

Thanks

Hi,
those indications is a recovery process to access the admin if you can't log in.

The normal way is to edit your (admin) account editing your password:
Go to " manage users " tab in the main menu

Thanks Ben

The thing is that I was not seeing the admin account from that page. I do not understand why, it was not listed.

I am reinstalling the tool.

I'll infor you after if I can see my user into.

You need to have sufficient rights to be able to edit user settings/passwords.

This resets the password to 'password' for limesurvey 2.05. You will need to delete admin first.
INSERT INTO `lime_users` VALUES(1, 'admin', 0x35653838343839386461323830343731353164306535366638646336323932373733363033643064366161626264643632613131656637323164313534326438, 'Administrator', 0, 'en', 'youremail@address.com', 'default', 'default', 'default', '', 1,'2014-03-12', '2014-03-12');

Greetings,

I have installed the most recent version of LimeSurvey on a fresh LAMP (xubuntu 14.04). During the installation, I neglected to flush privileges, so I messed up the initial admin login with default password. I tried the suggestion below (#106218) and was able to login but the admin page that appeared was stripped of all privileges; no menu, no option to change password, could not create survey, user edit had no option to change password. All I could do was logout. Seems as though something is missing in a table somewhere that provides users with privileges?

Thanks.
