I am running Odoo on my server and I am stuck on the login page for no reason. 

I have not changed the master password. I tried to connect using login : 'admin' and the password in the /etc/odoo-server.conf file but it didnt work. 

Does anone know if there is any other solution? 

Any help would be much appreciated.

from PostgreSQL database user interface issue the sql statement
update res_users set password='123' where login = 'admin';
Now, the password has been changed to 123, use it to login

Note : to run the PostgreSql , run the PostgreSQL\bin\pgAdmin3.exe

select your database, and open the query window

I'm using windows, if you're using Ubunto, I think you can follow similar paths

Thanks a lot ! Worked perfectly. Just needed to add the ';' at the end of the command. 

Thanks again and have a nice day!
