Login to site with no domain name

(James Cook) #1

I recently migrated a site to a new Discourse instance and domain name, and set the old domain name to redirect.

I can still access my old Discourse using the IP address, but I was using Google OAuth to log me in as the admin.

You can only use top level domains as OAuth redirects with Google, so short of pointing my old domain back to the old IP address, is there any way I can reset my user account with a known password so that I can log in to the old Discourse again?

I’m asking here first in case I do something wrong and lock myself out.

You can get around needing to use OAuth by visiting /users/admin-login.

That’s awesome. Thank you.
