An admin can change anyone’s password except the master admin (named Headwiz by default). If you forget your Headwiz password, there’s a special tool to reset it. are a few ways to change it.

Shell Method

Log into the server shell and change into the aresmush folder. Run the following script with the desired new password:

bin/script reset_headwiz_password,somenewpassword

Tinker Method

If you have access to an admin with tinker privileges, use the tinker command to reset it through code.

Change the tinker handler method to be:

def handle
   headwiz = Game.master.master_admin
   headwiz.change_password("somenewpassword")
end

Then you can just type tinker and it will reset the password.
