Password recovery


    You can recover the password for the admin user using the recovery.php script.

    How to recover the password

    1. Download the recovery.php file.
    2. Upload the recovery.php file to your Bludit installation, on the root folder.
    3. Open the file with your browser, for example:, change the for your domain.
    4. A new password for the admin user is generated and displayed in the browser.
    5. Log in to the admin panel with the admin user, and the new password generated.

    The recovery.php script is going to try to delete itself, but if this doesn't happen, we recommend delete the recovery.php file by hand.

    How to recover the password via command line

    You can execute the recovery.php file via the command line.

    # Go to the directory where you have installed Bludit
    cd /var/html/bludit
    # Download the file
    curl -o recovery.php
    # Execute the tool
