Hi,

I’ve recently taken over responsibility of a forum built using YAF.NET. The forum is currently on version v2.2.2 and I’ve been asked to update it to the latest release of v2.2.4.16. I’ve taken a look over the upgrade instructions on the YAF website and it seems very straight forward. The only issue I have is that I do not have the Config password used when the forum was first created. Is there a way to find or replace this password through the configuration files without breaking the forum?

Thanks.

Neil.

the Password can be found in the app.config under

<add key="YAF.ConfigPassword" value="****" />


You can also change it there, without breaking the forum
