How to recall an admin account?

I apologise if this has been asked before.

My sysadmin just quit and I need to regain control of the admin account. Is there a recommended procedure for such an action?

In the foswiki/lib/LocalSite.cfg file, there is a line like

$Foswiki::cfg{Password} = 'LyndhWlLgiqQ';

delete just that line, and then goto configure with your browser - you will then be able to set a new password.

I leave this as "needs rewriting" because it should be an FAQ item.
