Changing Liferay Password in database

Note : Use caution while trying this for the production installation. For production, it’s better to use technics like “Forgot Password”

If you forget password for your local admin account in Liferay, then stop the server and run the following command

Where mynewpassword is your new password. Now restart the server. This time you should be able to login with your new password. As soon as you login, Liferay should prompt you for password change. Change your password and try to remember it this time 😉

      Mohammad,
      What is the default liferay database you are talking about? You mean the HSQL database. The password is encrypted that’s why you have to use passwordEncrypted=0 to set password in clear text format
