Hello again.  I am finding a lot of trouble to do a simple thing.  

I am trying to change the admin password to one of my apps.  I do not want to delete the user.

Current hobo version is 2.2.4.

I am trying to do it in various ways, as developer through command line and as user, with no success.  

Maybe I am a little newbie in authentication things, but I've found no documentation of how to do it in two hours of googling.

I've found no way to do it from the user profile or account page.
Then I tried to do it from the forgot password.  I think in the old days the log files were showing the link, in the new days I had to configure the e-mail (i do not need it because we are a little team) in order to get that link.

When finally got the link to reset the password, I've found this:

Started PUT "/users/1-txinto/reset_password" for 10.0.2.2 at 2016-08-23 15:05:03 +0100

  actionpack (3.2.13) lib/action_controller/metal/rendering.rb:10:in `process_action'

So, my questions are:

- Is there a bug or maybe a bad configuration of my app?
- Is there a way to do the change directly in the database?
- Is there a safe way to do it through command line? (the ones I found and tested did not work).

Thank you in advance.

Tx.

Hello,

In my situation, the administrator is not allowed access to the main site and is forced via redirects to the admin subsite.  To change the password, I had to got to the following URL

<host>/users/1/account

Where I was presented with the change password form.  I could find no link to this page.

BTW, I am using Hobo 2.2.6.

Thanks for fast answer.

I am testing another deployment and probably it is not an issue.  I have an installation using the original app (with same code but based in older hobo 2.0.1 on Rails 3.2.13 executing Ruby 2.0) and it works fine.  It shows the correct fields in the "account" when you are authenticated, so the admin can change its password.

I am doing now the exercise to know if I lost the password attribute and fields when upgrading ruby, or when upgrading the app's hobo version.  I'll keep you informed.

Best regards.

Tx.

Here the result of my investigations:

Original code based on hobo 2.0.1 and executed with ruby-2.0.0-p648 works fine.

Executed under ruby 2.1.5p273, it misses the password fields in the "account" tab , so it makes impossible to change the password.

Same issue with 2.1.8.

I think the problem is in the upgrading procedure of the app.  As I did not need to change the password until now, I did not see the problems.

Best regards and thank you.

Tx.

Just out of curiosity: in Rails console "User.find_by_email_address('your-email').update_attribute(:password,'hello')" does work?
