Hello Try to change iredadmin password in console because I forgot it after a change in de webgui.

First I change it for the user iredadmin in de mysql database iredadmin

But now when I want to access the web interface I get a internal server error

Think it was to easy to change it like that

How did you change it? Detailed shell/SQL commands please.

Did you update it in iRedAdmin config file /var/www/iredadmin/settings.ini? For example:

[iredadmin]
# Database used to store iRedAdmin data. e.g. sessions, log.
host = 127.0.0.1
port = 5432
db = iredadmin
user = iredadmin
passwd = [NEW_PASSWORD_HERE]

Re: Change iredadmin password

I change it via an sql update command

mysql -uroot -p
use iredadmin;
UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('new-password') WHERE User='iredadmin' AND Host='host-name';

I change the password as you suggest in :

/var/www/iredadmin/settings.ini

And hurray the web interface returned back, but still not possible to login with the new password :-(((((

Pulling al my hair out !!!!

Is there any way to solve my problem??

Re: Change iredadmin password

The password you reset is not used for logging into iRedAdmin web interface. You can find username/password in your iRedMail installation directory, for example, /root/iRedMail-0.8.3/iRedMail.tips.

Re: Change iredadmin password

Yes there you can find the initial installation account information
But that was not where I'm looking for because I change that in the gui, and now I can't login anymore.

DO you offer paid support to solved my problem?
