I have forgotten my password to this Orchard CMS admin login and it is the only account on this website.

I attempted to follow this tutorial on how to reset the password via the database.

Even while successfully changing the record in the database, it still does not allow me to log in.

I added a new user account into the database and attempted to log in with that and it also failed.

The user table you have changed the password for has an ID, this id links to the table: Orchard_Framework_ContentItemRecord

You need to set the "Data" column with the same ID to null.

This is due to the new Infoset caching.

Would be good if Bertrand could update the past.

Would also be good if there was a way to clear the Infoset / cache.

But I did update that post, a while ago. Thanks for the heads up though.

Thanks.

I was able to login with a new password but get "Password change was unsuccessful. Please correct the errors and try again." when trying to change the password. Any advise?
