Reset Coldfusion Admin/RDS password

The Coldfusion administrator and RDS password can be reset
by changing the password.properties file located under \cfusionmx\lib\

Before you make any changes make a backup of the file so you can always restore it in it’s original conditions.

Take a look at the file it should look similar to the following :

rdspassword=\#<4W^\n
password=\#<7W^\n
encrypted=true

Let’s make some changes,

Set encrypted to false and enter your new passwords.
Save the file and restart the MX services.
