I Changed My FreePBX User Password And Am Locked Out


#1

My system had an extension hacked and, as I have done before, I changed all the extension passwords and as a safety precaution changed all the user passwords as well. Apparently one didn’t take because I logged out and since I use long random passwords I don’t know what it was before.

My question is, I have root access to the system, how do I go about changing the password from the console for an AMP user (I assume in the SQL database) so I can log back into the administrative site again?

Thanks!

You use fwconsole unlock …

Thank you, I still couldn’t access the admin so after doing this process a few times I saw that my user account lost all admin access, not sure if that was part of the password update but once I granted myself admin access I could get in.
