  • How to reset the password for all users?

    Hello, I would like to know how to reset the password for all users, is this possible?

    Send a new random password or re send a reminder with the same password that they have.

    There's no built in option to do that.

    If you want to force everyone to change their password in Usegroup Manager for Registered Users you could make password expiration like 7 days, I'd imagine that would force the vast majority to reset their password. Just be sure you extend it before it hits 7 days or people will be annoyed to change it twice.

      You can use a larger password expiry length and run this query as well:

      update %PREFIX%user set passworddate = "2012-01-01";

      Replace %PREFIX% with the table prefix assigned in your /core/includes/config.php file.

        The problem is that as I could not actualziar from vb4 to vb5, I delete everything and installed vb5 from 0,

        i lost all the posts but created all users one by one and now I need them they to receive an email to reset the password.

        They do not know the new password, I use a program to generate passwords.

            No, mass email with a new password isn't an option.

            You can go to Admin CP -> Users -> Send Email to Users, and send an email to all users - if your mail server can handle it, send them a link to your password reset page and explain they need to reset their passwords.
