What if you forget the ColdFusion Admin Password?

Imagine suppose you have forgotten the admin password and cannot log in to ColdFusion Administrator. Here is a solution for this, follow the below steps.

  1. Make a backup copy of CF_HOME\lib\neo-security.xml file

    In case of multi-server editions, the path is:
    C:\JRun4\servers\cfusion\cfusion-ear\cfusion-war\WEB-INF\cfusion\lib\neo-security.xml
  2. Open the neo-security.xml file in a text editor and change 'true' to 'false' for the admin.security.enabled variable tag. For example, search the file for "admin.security.enabled" and change the entry as follows:

    <var name='admin.security.enabled'><boolean value='false'/></var>
  3. Restart the ColdFusion application server.

You should now be able to bypass the login to the ColdFusion administrator. You can reset the password by choosing Security > Administrator.

Thanks - this worked perfectly! Since I am running CF8 as a single-user developer environment, I removed the need for a password.

Make sure "No Authentication Needed" is selected.

ColdFusion includes a dashboard used to set up the ColdFusion server. You can change the XML configuration file using the Windows administrator account to reset the server and prompt you for a new password. This doesn't recover your original password, but it gives you the opportunity to set up a new one.
