Post by Pr0n » Tue Sep 22, 2009 3:05 am

the idiot tech at my other store changed the password on my dvr and can't remember it, or made a typo (TWICE) I've still got root access to the machine of course, how do reset the zoneminder admin password?

fire up phpmyadmin

Go to ZM>USERS>IdiotsUserName>Password EDIT: remove hashed password making the password blank

As a reference here's the entries for command line mysql/mariadb

Code: Select all

mysql -u root -p
use zm;
show tables;
select * from Users\G
update Users set Password = "" where Password = "OLDHASHEDPASSWORD";
(or if you just have admin user only)
update Users set Password = "";
The idea is, blank the password out, then you can login with just username and no password.
