Subject: [Solved] Reset Password Dokuwiki Users
Hello, i got 2 Wikiadmins but still can't modify certain options... i can't remember the pass of the wiki founder.
Can someone tell me the algorytm to decrypt the password inside users.auth.php ?

Irc chat is active?
Thanks a Lot

HI,
You can't decode the password, except with brute force tools. DW uses a one way hashing function, not a two way encryption function. That said, you can reset a password. See for example andi's post in thread 2778, or as dominik states in the same thread https://www.dokuwiki.org/faq:forgotten_password .

Please also note that the "problem" might not be what you think it is. Options set in conf/local.protected.php cannot be changed via the admin panel, even by an admin. You should check that file first before resetting password. Manual edit of the file is required. This is a security feature.

Chat ?
Well, never been there really. But check the logs by yourself. Every day, there are people connecting, and some days, there are discussions...

The forum is of course not realtime, but very active. Your questions are welcome.
