Reset your DNN Password

UnlockDNN-ss1 I've previously shown how in DNN you could recover your DNN host password. In present times DNN has shifted it's default password policy in DNN 7.1.0 to use a hash password. What this means is that you can no longer simply see what the current password is for any of your users. While this is great for security it's a problem if you've forgotten your password and smtp is down. Expanding upon my previous script I've created a single page utility application that will allow you to:
  • See top 25 super users.
  • Change any users password.
  • Create a new super user.

Thanks so much for creating this!! I spent the last 3 days racking my brain trying to figure out how to reset my host password then I found this and it worked like a charm on the first try!!

Nice script. You should just mention that if hashed passwords are used, password retrieval is disabled so a new user will need to be created.

Dude, you rock! That is actually kind of scary…but thanks!
