Dear Sorter

For the Evaluation Embedded HSQL Database

To change the password to admin for a given username:

  1. Shut down Confluence.
  2. Open <confluence-home>/database/confluencedb.script, or confluencedb.log if the .script file looks empty.
  3. Search for:

    INSERT INTO CWD_USER VALUES(
  4. Keep searching until you find the appropriate user, then replace their password with the hash value above.
  5. Save the file.
  6. Restart Confluence.
