Wildfire, Version 3.1.1 - Forgot Admin Password

I have forgotten my password to log into the admin console for Wildfire, v3.1.1. The last time I logged in was approximately 8 months ago and I’'ve since forgot my username and password.

Can this be retrieved?

The password is stored in your database:

http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/docs/latest/documentation/database -guide.html#jiveUser

If you have never changed your password it should be stored as plaintext in table jiveUser. Otherwise its stored encrypted with blowfish. I assume you are using an MySQL database.

SELECT password FROM jiveUser WHERE username=''admin'';

If your password is NULL, it is stored encrypted. It should be possible to set encryptedPassword to NULL and password to anything you want:

UPDATE jiveUser SET encryptedPassword=NULL, password = ''yournewpassword'' WHERE username=''admin'';

After that login in adminconsole and change your password again so it is stored encrypted.

Edit: I you have forgotten your database password too, take a look into wildfire configfile.
