unable to login in bitbucket

due to having multiple nationalities access a server and having multiple keyboard settings on that server we can't get into bitbucket webinterface anymore. Is there a way to reset administrator password from SQL database?

You can use the lockout recovery procedure to regain access - see for details.

Hi Christian, 


what am I doing wrong? I still can't login. It keeps telling 'invalid username or password'

What I did: I changed the code as told by your manual (see picture below)

I saved this .bat file and restarted the services for bitbucket but still can't login. Also tried to run the bat file directly but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Thank you in advance, your help is appreciated. 

kind regards, Nick


That doesn't look right - it should be set in line 12 in that file, not down there.
