Hello Vins,

Just in addition to the Andre's answer, if you're using HSQL-db you can connect to the database using the DBVisualizer and so perform the procedure to restore the password to recover admin user rights, see below:

I hope this helps!



Hi Vins,

the only way (I think) is to get access to the database and set a new password for the admin user.

More Information about that topic can be read in the Confluence Documentation:

I don't know if there is any way to make that if you are using the hsql-db.

Kind regards
