resetting password for non-email users

I have setup foswiki with no email setup. Not all my users have emails. I received some request to reset or change password. How do I go about this if the user does not have emails?

Assuming you use .htpasswd for passwords

  • Enable emailing
  • Edit .htpasswd with an ascii editor (never with htpasswd!!). Find the line with the user and add your own email address
  • Reset his password using the System.ResetPassword page
  • Wait for the email
  • Send the password to him by snail mail, SMS, phone or whatever
  • Instruct him to change the password on System.ChangePassword
