Reset the ColdFusion Administrator Password

If you have forgotten your ColdFusion Administrator password you cannot find it out, but you can turn off password usage so as to be able to reset it. To do this locate the neo-security.xml file (it will be in the lib directory beneath the ColdFusion root). Look for a section that reads: , change the ‘true’ to ‘false’, save the file, and then restart ColdFusion. You will then be able to log into the ColdFusion Administrator without a password so as to set a new password and then turn on password use again. (Applies to: ColdFusion MX)
