Resetting the Lucee Web and Server Admin passwords

To reset your Lucee Web password, please try the following steps:

1) Check your Intranet installation directory. (eg : ..\inetpub\wwwroot\WEB-INF\lucee\ or ..\inetpub\wwwroot\intranet\WEB-INF\lucee\ )

2) Look for a file called 'lucee-web.xml.cfm'

3) Open this with a text editor

4) You should see something similar to the following examples near the top of the file you just opened:

Example 1:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<lucee-configuration password="f81f36bb12db1f7f6b2a27608aac997b63ee7c8c97af97e58c0ac2f8d702413b" version="2.0">
<cfabort/>

Example 2:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><cfLuceeConfiguration hspw="b81ee8dcf9c9aa3d7f18f80ef43e4ca9cdef53e78e727224d01465bd54c75277" password="0ac142061d24d44dc77c1f455d239e812e31667e9ae91153b80e3360fe76119a" salt="22D3979D-A772-4B6E-90468F2704638596" version="4.2"><cfabort/>

4b) Delete everything in the bolded fields so they look like password=""

5) Save the file

6) Look in Services for Lucee Server and restart this service.

7) Navigate back to the Lucee admin URL. (might take a minute or two to load)

http://[intranet server name, domain name or ip]/lucee/admin/web.cfm

NOT USING THE LUCEE ADMINISTRATOR LINK INSTALLED ON THE SERVER

8) You should now be prompted to set a new Password.
