Password recovery

Vote:
 
I have forgotten the edit/admin login password (for administrator). What is the procedure to retrieve this? I've tried logging in with my Windows account - but that doesn't work either. There really should be a "forgott my username or password" link in the login picture, which sends the login credentials to my e-mail.

Hi. EPiServer 4 is configured so that you always can login with the local administrator account.

Hello again. To clarify, you need of course to have the location path in web.config for the admin catalog to include Administrators. E.g.

Why is that I cannot enter the Admin mode of the sample Alloy site?

I use the URL http://localhost:17000/your/relative/path/to/UI/MyEPiServerSite/Episerver , and a login page shows up. 

What should be the username and password then?????? 

Anyone can help?

If no logins work but you have access to web.config, you could always "break in" as Fredrik describes in this blog:

Basically commenting out all the "<deny users="*" />" lines will let you log in without a password. 

Quickly fix your password, then put web.config back the way it was. 

Beware this should only be used in emergencies.
