Re: dhis2 admin password is lockout or was changed


Hi Gerald,
That is not going to work. The encrypted password has been "salted" with
the username, and so it is not possible to copy and paste from another
users password.

If you still have the "admin" user in your system, you can execute

UPDATE users set password = '48e8f1207baef1ef7fe478a57d19f2e5' where
username = admin;

and the password will be reset to the default "district" password.

If you do not have that user in the system, you would need to add some user
who has superuser access to the "userrolemembers" table.

Good luck,
