reset cdm (5.8) password

New Contributor

I installed CDM 5.8.2 a few days ago.

 

Somehow I cannot login to CDM as admin/admin anymore. Please help to reset the password. I've tried to login to postgresql DB and reset it from there without luck. Maybe due to wrong "password_hash" and "password_salt".

 

Thank you very much!

 

James

Worked for 6.3.1 (The "9f7e3270b1aaa4931d38845a0334e66b2dd93f916439006fac4e5e2535a444b3", -5357030608435271136)

 

The other combination "ffa2eb4251b38e069e968890cb2bcdb6229982322f5ed2470bf96231fe4c39c8", -4382599614486590865 DID NOT work in 6.3.1.
