How to Restore the 'admin' password

update ver 1.1.9 added a CLI option to restore the password for the WebUI account  - 'admin'

 

If you need to restore the password to the default password of 'paloalto' the CLI syntax is shown below:

 

 

expedition@Expedition:/var/www/html$ php /home/userSpace/utils/restore/restoreAdmin.php

 

✓ Connected successfully to the database

✓ Admin user found

✓ Admin password restored to:    'paloalto'

 

expedition@Expedition:/var/www/html$

Hi Sjanita,

 

I can't use this command to restrore my admin password. Please see below the results when I tried to run the command in expedition:

It doesn't seem that I have utils directory.

 

expedition@ubuntu1604:/var/www/html$ sudo php /home/userSpace/utils/restore/restoreAdmin.php
Could not open input file: /home/userSpace/utils/restore/restoreAdmin.php


expedition@ubuntu1604:/var/www/html$ cd /home/userSpace/
expedition@ubuntu1604:/home/userSpace$ ls -la

Hi,

 

I see you do not have the utils folder. Could I ask which version of Expedition are you currently running?

Hello,

 

Looks like the file has moved. Here is the new location :

 

Aswell the login might be admin instead of expedition

 

expedition:~$ php /var/www/html/OS/startup/restore/restoreAdmin.php

✓	Connected successfully to the database
✓	Admin user found
✓	Admin password restored to:    'paloalto'

Yes that is correct and you could always locate the file with the "sudo find" command
