If you've forgotten your password for ACSM you can reset it to get access back, via one of these methods:
If you've forgotten your password, you can set an
admin_password_override key in
config.yml. It will change the admin password to be whatever you have specified in plain text. You will then be prompted to change your password on next login.
The default admin user cannot be deleted or have its group changed.
Running your own AC server is great fun until you realise how much work it is, at that point the best course of action is to get somebody else to do all of the management work for you!
If you want to do that (or just run a more locked down server manager where only people with accounts can view results etc.) the easiest way is to create an account for them.
First navigate to
Server -> Accounts
Then click the
Add Account button
Now enter the details for the new account. The username can be anything you like, the group controls the permission level that the account will have on server manager, and the default password is auto generated. Copy this password and send it to whoever you are setting the account up for, they will be prompted to replace it with their own password the first time they log in. When you're happy with the details click the
Add User button.
Now just send the username and password to whoever you are setting the account up for and you're done! You can always go back and edit/add more accounts later on.
