Lost admin account and password

Added by Jean-Luc Pinardon almost 11 years ago

Dear all,

I am a new (french) Redmine user (Redmine 0.7.3 on Ubuntu Hardy Heron +MySQL database), I want to evaluate it for Change and Software Conf management. That means that I am very interesting by the complete svn+redmine integration.

So, during some trials to obtain the complete configuration, I finally lost the admin account.
I really don't known what happened.
So, perhaps does it still exists perhaps not.

How can I retrieve it ?
Is there a quite simple procedure, or should I reinstall the redmine application, knowing that I have made nothing really important.

Thanks for your help.

Best Regards,
J-L

There is the lost password link on the /login page you can use if you remember the email.

Otherwise you can run one of the following commands:

To find the email account for the admin user to use with the list password link

RAILS_ENV=production script/runner 'puts User.find(:first, :conditions => {:admin => true}).mail'

Find the first admin user and set their password to 'my_password'

RAILS_ENV=production script/runner 'user = User.find(:first, :conditions => {:admin => true}) ; user.password, user.password_confirmation = "my_password"; user.save!'

If you want to run a command from console, you can use

ruby script/runner 'command' -e production

For example:

ruby script/runner 'puts User.find(:first, :conditions => {:admin => true}).mail' -e production
