Subject Re: Reset admin user + disable password auto-change

You can use the reset password link to have it emailed to you, if that  
was set up correctly. Otherwise you need to alter the database, or  
drop it entirely.

You can do that by simply removing the data/databases/users directory  
if you are using the standalone derby installation and restarting the  

The security configuration page on the web site details how to change  
the configuration properties such as expiration.
