Resetting user password in Mantis BugTracker

In case you forgot your Mantis BugTracker password here is a a simple way to reset it. This approach assumes that you have write access to the database table mantis_user_table.

So in order to reset the password for a given user find and update the respective entry’s password column with a MD5 hash value of your new password, e.g. through running “md5 -s your_password” in your shell and copying the resulting string in the password column.

That’ it. Happy bug tracking 🙂
