Reset password lost without admin redmine account but with admin redmine database account
Yesterday i have migrated from redmine 1.4.x to redmine 2.0.3 and realized that the CAS plugin don't work on redmine 2 (http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Plugin_List#CAS-single-sign-on-authentication-plugin) ! So i have'nt CAS authentication and I did't have an admin work local account !!
Found in file /app/models/user.rb: 'The hashed password is stored in the following form: SHA1\(salt + SHA1)'
So you can reset password in two steps:
- clear salt
- calculate sha1(sha1(new_password))
For example for the password "password" (without quote) it will be "53bc9eb4d750583f81abcfad5e73fc3e4e38f8ce"
You have to go to redmine database, find "users" table, find user to reset password, clear "salt" field's user and put "53bc9eb4d750583f81abcfad5e73fc3e4e38f8ce" in "hashed_password" field's user and log to redmine with new password 'password' (without quote)
Enjoy ! It saved me ...

sha1(sha1(password)) should be:
