reset password

hi,

i read that resetting password is simply deleting entry in
<httpdigest>.store in project directory and then adding user again.
has this no site effects to ticket entry consistency (like owner not
existing anymore)? or is it enough to just create a new user with same
username?

is there another way to reset passwords, for instance through web-
console, clicking on user in admin panel and doing settings? something
like in Components settings where i can reset name and owner.

You don't need to delete the user from the httpdigest store.
Using the htdigest command in apache you can change the password.
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/htdigest.html

Also, if the user has entered their email address into their preferences,
they can use the "forgot your password?" link that appears at the top right
of trac when you aren't logged in.

Hope this helps

Stephen

Re: reset password [In reply to]

alright, but just for interest would a deletion of user lead to
consistency-problems of tickets if just deleted user is set as owner
and created shortly after?
on top right i cannot see any forgot-password link (does it need to be
configured, have not noticed any entry in trac.ini)

am using trac 0.11dev

No it shouldn't as long as the username is exactly the same. The tickets
and the associated user names are stored in a Trac database, which isn't
linked to the httpdigest file.

Do you have the Account Manager plugin installed?
http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/AccountManagerPlugin
If you are, make sure you've enabled the Account Module.

Stephen

Re: reset password [In reply to]

yes AccountManagerPlugin is installed and AccoutnModule enabled:
[components]
...
acct_mgr.web_ui.accountmodule = enabled

there is the possibility to change passwords for user so plugin seems
to work. maybe 'Reset password' is not visible for smtp is not yet
configured...

Re: reset password [In reply to]

ah yeah - No email server - no way to send out the password reset :)
