Password recovery

Contents

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

    How to recover the password

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

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