Resetting the admin password

In order to reset the admin password to “admin” you need to manually edit the database on the device.

Important! The path may be /srv/www/htdocs/db/, or /usr/local/snapt/program/db

cd /srv/www/htdocs/db/
sqlite3 snapt.db

Once inside run .explain —

sqlite> .explain

Then run the following to have a look —

select * from users;

The password is hashed but it will show you the username. Most importantly you want the id of your admin user (normally 1)

You can run this —

update users set password='d033e22ae348aeb5660fc2140aec35850c4da997' where id=1;

To revert the password to admin. Make sure you are root (su – with password snapt) beforehand.
