Well, I searched the forums and can’t find the answer for this.
My maint password doesn’t work anymore. And i need to reset it from the command line since i have root access.
I’m on FreePBX 5.211.65-7
Thanks.

What search terms have you used that you were unable to find anything on resetting the GUI password?

The first links that comes up when you search the forums or the wiki on “forgot gui password” yields the correct answer.

You can try from ssh:

amportal admin auth_none (you can login now without credentials)

Now you can Add/Remove or edit users with passwords in the webgui.
Afterwords from ssh type

amportal admin auth_database (now the credentials are needed again to login to the webgui)

Hope this will help you with your problem.

The easiest way is outlined in our wiki here. http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/L1/amportal+commands

Look at section amportal a u xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-

dude, this worked like a charm!
thanks :slight_smile:


#10

tried this and it work too.
only diff vs ‘amportal a u’ is having to go back to the cmd line to re-enable the db
thanks tho!


#11

ur right, that works yielding the 1st result…
but i used “reset maint password” originally and it didn’t (not even the first page). hence why i asked!
we don’t all know the exact perfect words at first, which is why search is sometimes hit or miss :wink:
