Reset admin password? Pydio 8.2.3

I changed the password in the GUI for the admin user, and can’t log back in anymore with the same password. Not sure what happened, but can someone please let me know how to reset the admin password for Pydio 8.2.3.

Note: There’s some instructions for older versions of Pydio online, but there’s different instructions for which files to delete, and the approach to changing the MySQL password uses MD5.

uname -r


lsb_release -a

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic


You can generate a md5 string and override on password col in DB, you can login with new password.

Hi. It’s still not letting me login. “Cannot find user, please try again. Make sure your Caps Lock is not engaged!” The user is there, it’s like it can’t find the user for some reason.

Found the issue. I had set LDAP/AD as the “primary driver,” but it also needed MySQL DB as the “secondary driver.” This is why the admin user wasn’t being recognized.
