Lost_password

If you lost your (Mailwatch) login password, you can change the password if you can gain access to MySQL.

Execute the following modified command (replace <YourUsername> and <YourNewUserPassword>):

 /usr/bin/mysql -u mailwatch -p`cat /etc/EFA-Config | grep MAILWATCHSQLPWD | sed 's/.*://'` mailscanner -e "UPDATE users SET password = md5(**'<YourNewUserPassword>**') WHERE user=**'<YourUsername>**'"

If you don't know the username anymore you can check all users with the following command:

  /usr/bin/mysql -u mailwatch -p`cat /etc/EFA-Config | grep MAILWATCHSQLPWD | sed 's/.*://'` mailscanner -e "select * from users"
