Forgot Admin Login URL and Access Details


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I misplaced the access details of an older Processwire website that requires some maintenance as I lost the notes with custom acess url, username and password.

I have access to the hosting server and the database.

Is there a way to find the login URL and reset the password?

Your help is much appreciated!

You can find the name of the admin by looking at the page with ID 2 in the database. Since you have access to the filesystem, you can also just echo $config->urls->admin somewhere.

To reset the admin password, put this into a template and execute it:

$u = $users->get(41);
$u->pass = 'hunter2';

41 is usually the superuser who installed the site. If it isn’t you can try to find the account by selecting one with the role “superuser”.
