Hello,

Issue: forgot master password

In openerp database management where we able to change password.

I have changed the default master password to another, now I have forget it.

Please let me know how can I recover it.

thanks, urgent.

So you are talking about recovering the Administrator password, not the Master Database password?

If you have access to openerp-server.conf (your active OpenERP server config file). e.g: /etc/openerp-server.conf

The password is written anywhere in that file:

admin_passwd = ********

The config file is also read from ~/.openerp_serverrc

Have you tried restarting the server with the admin_passwd set in your conf file?

.openerp_serverrc

Default admin master password is stored in openerp-server.conf

but its not given forgotten one.

Master password for openerp will found at .openerp_serverrc file.

Which located at home directory

Open Terminal

user@ubuntu: cat .openerp_serverrc [options] addons_path = -------------------
admin_passwd = admin
csv_internal_sep = ,

Here you found your master admin password.

I saw Yohanes' correct response, and suggested my answer to a related question as additional reading to help with a broader understanding. You have ambiguous terminology that confused Yannick. The answer I refer to attempts a disambiguation of the different password type names.

If it's additional reading, it shouldn't be posted as an Answer. It would be best to add this as a Comment wither to the question, or to a correct answer.

If you are talking about the OpenERP admin user password, you can recover it if your database passwords aren't encrypted. (as for any other OpenERP user password)

  SELECT login, password FROM res_users WHERE login = 'admin';

Sorrry U got miss understanding, I am talking about master password.
