ODK Central Passwords Saved

Hi there,

Kindly asking if anyone knows where on the odk server backend are the passwords stored? Or where in the backend i can retrieve passwords? I have accidently lost my password and can no longer sign in.

Our ODK Central does have problems resetting via email, as no emails come through when we try to reset.

Passwords are not stored in plain text and cannot be retrieved in that way. You may however set a web user's password via the command line when logged into the server: https://docs.getodk.org/central-command-line/#setting-a-web-user-password-by-command-line

Thanks for the response @danbjoseph, apologies as I am not very well versed in the technical side but how can i access the command line? We currently have odk central hosted on digital ocean.

When installing Central there were steps that involved logging into the server. You'll need to follow that same process of logging in. https://docs.getodk.org/central-install-digital-ocean/#installing-central
