Forgot my account pwd, no pwd reset email...?


#1

own cloud doesn’t appear to be sending pwd reset emails from my domain.
Can’t remember my own password so can’t configure the service - but desktop version working.

Any other ways to access password reset?

(I notice the advice on this page to do this via Linux… I’m a Mac user so have Terminal, but a novice… could some extra info be put on the page so I can just copy and paste into terminal?)

Hey,

maybe the existing documentation on how to reset a password is helping you?

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/administration_manual/configuration/user/reset_admin_password.html

Yes and no.

I have sorted it now, but not being much of a technical person I had to ask a local friendly developer to help me.

I needed to be able to SSH to my web server, which meant creating an RSA key and a whole load of stuff in Terminal. I realise knowing how to do this is slightly out of scope of owncloud’s docs but it would make owncloud more accessible to mere mortals if pointers were included.
