How do I reset BlogEngine admin password?
If you are using default XML provider:
- Get to your website (usually by FTP to your web server).
- Open /app_data/users.xml in the text editor, for example notepad.
Remove password from your admin account, meaning:
If you are using SQL then instead of XML file update DB table:
UPDATE be_Users SET Password = '' WHERE UserName = 'admin'
Restart web site, easiest way is to open web.config and add a space to the comment and save it. Comments are:
<!-- anywhere between tags like these -->
- Now you should be able to log in as admin/admin.
If you don't have Admin account in the users.xml file, add new user tag like so:
<User> <UserName>Admin</UserName> <Password></Password> <Email>email@example.com</Email> <LastLoginTime>2007-12-05 20:46:40</LastLoginTime> </User>
Once logged in as admin, you can delete and create again any user account from admin panel.
