Resetting passwords

Under the scripts directory you will find a script that lets you reset a user’s password. You can invoke it as:

scripts/ theusername newpassword  # or password-reset.bat under Windows

If you are running against MySQL, you can use this command to set a password while the system is running. If you are running against the demo database, you will need to shutdown ArchivesSpace before running this script.
