How to Restore the 'admin' password

L5 Sessionator

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'




I have found the following error:
