unfortunately the “Forgot Password” function seems not to work (Revo 2.8.3), now I need to reset password for me (my admin user) via phpMyAdmin. I created a new user, I entered an user name, a md5 hash as password, and I changed hash_class to hashing.modmd5. But can’t login with new user and clear password.
Also tried a version with PBKDF2 hash and salt an changed hash_class back to hashing.modPBKDF2. Any hints here?
Or how to possibly repair the “Forgot Password” function (maybe I need to change to smtp?)
You could install another MODX site of the same version with the admin user having the same username and email. Then copy that admin record to the troubled site’s modx_users table, replacing the admin user’s record.
Nothing would change but the admin users password, which you’d now know if you made a note of it.
