Hi Tom, To reset the HN administrator password when you lost it, you need to do two things: (1) Edit the hnpeople/<name> file and remove the password from the "Password:" field in this file. (2) Remove the entry of this member from hnpeople/.htpasswd. To add a second administrator, the procedure you described will do. When you later logon to change the password for this new accouCnt, the form may show '*****' in the password input field even though the password is blank, so make sure you delete these '*****' and leave the input field empty when you hit "Update" for this new member. regards, -- Terry Hung - Stanford Linear Accelerator Center phone: 650-926-3618 e-mail: email@example.com > How can I change the HN administrator password?
