Hi Jadda,

 

You can change the default admin password back to "password" by running an SQL script against the HPOO database.

 

update users set pass='Q6nL2s2VB83+oCjG8gr+zA==' where user_id='admin';

 You will of course need write access to the database to perform this.

 

Hope this helps.

 

cheers

steve

Re: How can i change admin(default) account password from other account

If you log in with the administrator account and go to the Administration -> Change User Password tab you can update the password to something else.

 

If you access this tab with a non-Internal account (i.e, an account from LDAP) it will have a message saying "applies only to Internal accounts" or something similar.

 

You cannot reset the default administrator account with any other account even if they have full access.
