    I just installed Pydio (via .zip file) on a server running Ubuntu 12.04 and eventually got everything working, using Sqlite3 for the DB.

    Unfortunately, I allowed the mac keychain to pick the password for the admin user and, for whatever reason, it didn’t save it in my OS X keychain. Result: I don’t know my own admin password.

    I’ve read through a couple of threads on here but didn’t see any specific help for this situation.

    Is there a way to reset the admin password? Barring that, I guess I could run “sudo apt-get purge sqlite3 php5-sqlite” and then delete the entire Pydio folder, but I’d rather not do that given that it took me quite a while to set it all up.

    Ok, a good way would be to actually recreate an admin account by re-running the installer on top of your existing instance. For that, you remove the following files from data/cache/ : first_run_passed, admin_counted, plugins_*.ser (3), then relaunch pydio, you should see the installer. Backup your DB file (under data/plugins/conf.sql/ajaxplorer.db), but basically tables will not be overriden, just the new admin user should be created. Use another login to make sure.
