Admin action: How to set/reset user password

(Girish Padharthi) #1


I’m hosting Discourse using Bitnami stack on Ubuntu 13.10 for a small team. Email support is yet to be configured due to proxy issues.

Now a user has requested for password reset. The email is not functional so the user does not receive a password reset notification.

Could you tell me how an admin can reset his/her password?

I strongly suggest you set up Mandrill for email as described in our install guide, email section.

Thanks for suggesting Mandrill. Will definitely switch over to it in the future once proxy issue is resolved.


There is no way for an admin or mod to directly change a users password is there? Only the email re-activation option?
