I lost my FreePBX password, how do I reset it?

here is how to change your lost password:

1. SSH to your VPS

2. run mysql on your asterisk box. (the default root mysql password in elastix is eLaStIx.2oo7 )
[root@asterisk /]# mysql -u root -p

3. use asterisk database.

mysql>use asterisk;

4. update admin password in ampusers table.
mysql> update ampusers set password="NEW_PASSWORD" where username="admin";


NOTE: change "NEW_PASSWORD" to your new password.
