New Admin User What is the Password: How do the know

Postby PHPListSteve » 4:34pm, Sun 18 Jan, 2015

Sorry if this has been asked but I can't find it on the forum and I've be grateful if someone would point be at the documentation.

I'm running 3.0.7.

I have added a couple of Admin users, following most the defaults. I can't see what their passwords are, or how these new people find out what they are. No emails appear to be sent and I can't see where I might display it.

Thanks for you help.

You need to select the Yes radio button against "Password (hidden)". phplist will then send an email to the admin that contains a link to a page where he can enter a new password.

Thanks for the reply.

When I click the 'password' button and email is sent to the users email address.

That email says "To enter a new one, please visit the following link:".

When I click the link I get "The page you were looking for doesn't exist."

I wanted to just send the new user their password, is that possible?

I guess that there is something else that I need to configure to allow the user to set their own password. Can you give me a clue as to what that might be. Thanks.

Possibly you have not set the correct $pageroot in the config.php file or the website address on the admin Settings page.

But it would be more useful if you gave the url that cannot be found.

Yep that was it

the host domain name was wrong: should have spotted that, sorry.
