I'm trying to set the password for a 'test' user account on my localhost test site. I don't have an email server to send the reset emails, so I've been using the copy URL method.
When I do go to the URL and change the password, I get a 'Page Not Found' page. I went ahead and checked to see if the password was in fact changed, but upon successive login tests, they failed.
I was wondering what might be causing the 'Page Not Found' error? Is there a way to set the password through a plugin, etc?


  • Is it a Craft-styled 404 Page Not Found or a web-server styled one?

If you have access to the database you can change the user's password to: $2y$13$FfVKvo1W1N5Gsba3c19r8uz.x9R5NRQgRu8jmXvOjVCStg1sKGcoW which is 'secret' when un-hashed.

Sorry, I can not comment yet.

Do you try copy your admin password to your test user in database? It can be way. Do you debug the "Page Not Found" error?
