Subject Re: Admin password change - Futon?
Date Fri, 27 May 2011 13:59:05 GMT
Thanks Gabor,

The DB is hosted on CouchOne/Couchbase so I cannot access the file
system. Do you mean I can delete the admin user in Futon's config
section, then recreate it?

The DB is in use for a web app so I don't want to disrupt it except
for a minute or so.

text, CouchDB will take care of hashing the password afterwards. Also, if you delete all admin
rows, you are back to admin party and you can set up a shiny new admin user using Futon.
