So silly me, I have a JIRA instance local on my home PC (localhost:8080) to play around with stuff and I haven't played in it for so long that I forgot the password I set up for the sole user of the JIRA instance.
mySQL Community database (5.6.39)
JIRA version is (v7.8.0#78000-sha1:4568b9d)
I tried resetting the password to "sphere" using the method described in the KB
update cwd_user set credential='uQieO/1CGMUIXXftw3ynrsaYLShI+GTcPS4LdUGWbIusFvHPfUzD7CZvms6yMMvA8I7FViHVEqr6Mj4pCLKAFQ==' where user_name='XXXX';
replacing XXXX with the username for my lone user. It executed successfully in mySQL, but when I try to log into JIRA with the user and the password sphere, it fails.
Update: it eventually ended up working. Not sure why but there was a delay.
