Subject Re: Admin password change - Futon?
Date Fri, 27 May 2011 13:52:20 GMT
Edit the [admins] section of local.ini (usually at /usr/local/etc/couchdb/local.ini but depends
on where you have couchdb installed). You can just have "username = password" in plain 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.
