If you lose or forget your a2billing 1.4 root password then there is a simple procedure for resetting it by editing the MySQL database.
To do this you’ll need to get SSH access to your server. If you use Windows then Putty is a good, free application for this.
1. Log in to your server as root
2. Determine the database name, user and password for your A2Billing database
The settings are normally at the top of the file so we just need the first 15 lines. Here’s mine –
password = a2billing-password
dbname = mya2billing
3. Log in to MySQL using the details we just got for the A2Billing database –
4. Change the password for root to ‘changepassword’. This is the default password and is now stored encoded as opposed to plain text as in A2Billing 1.3
5. You should now be able to login to A2Billing using the username/password of root/changepassword.
