Sometimes it can be very frustrating when you lose one of your passwords, especially when it happens with your FreePBX. In this tutorial, I will show you in detail (with screenshots) how to reset FreePBX WebGUI admin password.
Press Ctrl+A or start selecting text on the page with mouse cursor like on the screenshot below, to find out your current session ID.
3. SSH to your FreePBX system by any convenient method and change user to root (or SSH as root, if it’s allowed on your system).
4. Now run this command (as root!), as per screenshot below.
fwconsole unlock YOUR-SESSION-ID-HERE
5. Go back to your browser window and refresh the page (don’t open a FreePBX WebGUI in the new tab, or a different browser now, because session ID would be changed!).
You are now logged in to the dashboard as a fwconsole user. If you want to confirm this for yourself, please see the screenshot below.
Go to Admin -> Administrators
8. This would be the last step for this tutorial, I promise
