Apresa – Reset the admin password

– Log on in the Linux system shell (SSH, or directly) using the vidi account.
– Execute the following command:

sudo psql apresa -c "update users set pwd=md5('admin') where usr='admin' "

(including the single and double quotation marks)

The system should reply with:

The command resets the password of the admin account. To log on use admin as both the username and the password. For security reasons, it is strongly recommended to change the password to something else.

When changing the password through the web interface, not MD5 but a more secure hashing algorithm will be used.
