I recently had a client who needed help with their ColdFusion installation due to their CF resource leaving the company.  Unfortunately, nobody had a copy of the ColdFusion Administrator password to perform updates or maintenance.

Changing it, however, is straight forward, as long as you have access to the machine ColdFusion is installed on.  Here’s the steps:

  • Browse to the {cfroot}/bin directory
  • Look for a file called passwordreset.bat (Windows) or passwordreset.sh (Linux)
  • Execute that file and follow the on-screen prompts.

That’s it.  This tool will allow you to change the ColdFusion Administrator password or the Admin Component (jetty) password.

Enjoy!
