Hi,

I used password reset button to reset the Admin password. The message "The mail has been sent successfully" showed up, but I did not get the email.

Now I can not login as Admin anymore. Please help.

I have created severl users with Administrator priviliges, but no one of them works.

How can I reset/remove the admin password so that I can login as Admin for the site?

Many thanks for your help.

Haven't tried this yet, but this might work:

- Create a new site on your local computer
- Add an admin account
- Look in /App_Data for the file: "Users.config"
- Backup your original users.config file in which the existing accounts are
- override the admin account (everything between <UserTable> and </UserTable>) with the the admin stuff from your local computer
- Try to login again using the password from your local admin account
