Resetting adminpassword without MYSQL database?


I got a big Problem. I lost my admin password.

I found some tutorials wich describe how to recover a password from an MYSQL-database, but is it possible to recover a password from the standard database ?

you do not need access to the databse to set a local admin. you can create a new admin user by stepping through the config again. To do this stop the openfire server. edit the openfire.xml setup tag to read false. start the openfire server, goto the admin website and step through the config. supply a new admin user and password.

Thanks for the help !
