Reset the Master Admin Password

  • [manage]
  • [password]
  • [headwiz]

An admin can change anyone’s password except the master admin (named Headwiz by default). If you forget your Headwiz/God password, here 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.

Forgotten Ares Shell Password

If you’ve forgotten your ares user password to the server shell, you can use the ‘root’ user to reset it. Just type passwd ares and enter a new password.

If you’ve also forgotten your root user password, you can reset it in your Digital Ocean account. See the DO help article reset droplet root passwords for details.
