Locked out, do not remember password and can't reset.

  • I have uninstalled then reinstalled and still no go. I am locked out and using the latest firefox for the UI and am on a windows 11 machine. I have no clue how to perform ssh reset and am frankly stressing out completely. No matter what I do it asks for the password and says the default one is incorrect. How in the world do I reset it to default settings so I can log in once again?

    hyperiond --help

    hyperiond --resetPassword

    Next time please provide more information.

    Windows 11 and latest firefox is not enough. ;)

    regards pclin

  • what is that code and how do I implement it? I don't know how to code. I don't know any python. I'm just trying to get things working and I am sorry I am so new to this. Kind of wish there was a user friendly way to reset password. What other information do you need?

    So that's it, no other help on how to use that?

    The above is not about coding but provides a view about argument that you can start Hyperion with.

    So either you do this via the windows command line or you create a shortcut, add the --resetPassword option and start via the shortcut.

    Just standard Windows stuff…

    1. Stop Hyperion

    2. In the Windows Searchbar (bottom left) enter cmd and press Enter

    2. You see the Windows commandline window

    3. Paste following line into the commandline window

    "C:\Program Files\Hyperion\bin\hyperiond.exe" --resetPassword

    Press Enter

    4. The Commandline Window looks like this

    5. Start Hyperion

  • Thank you! Thank you! That is all I was asking for. Like I said, I am a complete noob to this. And that worked and I wont be changing no passwords anymore and if I do I will make sure ff remembers it. How do I donate?
