Password Incorrect CF 10 Admin

Oct 31, 2012 9:33 PM

I have just installed CF 10 locally on a Windows 7 machine and I am having troubles with my password. I have used the passwordreset.bat file, and still no luck.

 

I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling CF 10. I'm pulling my hair out over here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Can you please try the following.

    Open the file <CF_INSTALL_HOME>\cfusion\lib\password.properties and change the following properties and then restart the server(While starting the server it will automatically get encrypted).

    password=<yourpassword>

    encrypted=false

     

    Thanks,

    Krishna

    Fair enough, but the whole point of the password reset script in 10 was to save you having to play that game.

     

    Can you share any more on what was not working with the script? Was that it gave an error? Or is there a chance you were running it for a different instance than the one whose Admin you were trying to access? Just seems a shame that you had to drop back to the “old way” of dealing with a forgotten password.

     

    I’ll understand if you feel only that “it just didn’t work”. I just wanted to ask in case you might have more to share. Thanks.

    Interesting. I suppose it’s moot now, since you’ve solved it, but in case someone else finds this someday, I wonder if it may be significant (if you were on a Windows 2008 or Windows 7 box) to run that script in a command prompt that’s been opened “as admin” (meaning, choose start>accessories and then right click on “command prompt” to choose “run as admin”.) I’ve seen some things in CF (like the web server connector, and the keytool for adding certificates) “seem to work” but not really unless you “run as admin”.

     

    Hope that may help someone.

    Great to hear. Actually, might it then be better to mark that as the “answer”, so that if someone else finds this someday, they try that versus the “old school” xml hack?
