    Hi,

    The password generated after installation was used to login first time. Missed out on changing the password and logged out. Now I don’t remember the generated password and my installation is not letting me in.

    How can overcome this problem?

    Thanks

    If you have access to the database with phpMyAdmin, you can do something like this:

    Create a new user in bbPress. Check your email for the password email. Save that password somewhere. Now, open phpMyAdmin and take the password hash from the new user, and paste it into the password hash field for the admin user. Now, log into bbPress with your admin username. Delete the new user if you like.

    If you don’t have access to the database, then why not just reinstall?

    I think you used to be able to put a line in your config.php like this: $bb->new_keymaster = true; Then run bb-admin/install.php again.
