Reset the administrative user password with Drush in Drupal 7

Posted 24/05/2016

In this snippet we will reset the Drupal administrative user password using a Drush command.  Now we do not have a problem if we have forgotten the password.  If we are the Drupal administrative user, all we have to do is execute one line of Drush commands.

Here, newpassword is the new password that we want to establish, and “admin” is the name of the Drupal administrative user.

drush upwd --password="nuevopassword" "admin"
