    Default explanation

    Could you please explain how you exactly do this.
    How you generate this encrypted password ? ( openssl ? )
    Which value will be replaced ?
    Where I find it in the database ?

    The way to disable the context-authentication isn't really professionell.

    Thanks a Lot

    Losing passwords isn't professional as well Disabling context authentication only applies to the admindaemon, not the the groupware.

    However, those passwords are base64 encoded strings of SHA1. You might generate a new password in SHA1, base64encode it and put it to the database.

    It is really impressive how fast i get an answer here. Great praise !!

    If you give a group of customers the possibility to administrate themselv, it unfortunately happens many times.

    But one singe question still remains.
    Where I find the right value in the database ?

    Thats the "user" table at the groupware database:

    Code:
    mysql> SELECT userPassword FROM user WHERE cid=1 and id=2;
    +------------------------------+
    | userPassword                 |
    +------------------------------+
    | 5en6G6MezRroT3XKqkdPOmY/BfQ= | 
    +------------------------------+
    Please make sure that you update the correct password and make backups of the original ones.
