How to reset Dot net nuke / DNN host Password

How to reset Dot net nuke / DNN host Password

Orignal Post:

============ Dave thanks for the good work ===================

One of the most frustrating events that can happen in any system is forgetting your password and not being able to retrieve it. DotNetNuke has a retrieval system built in, but you have to make sure your system can send mail in order to make use of it.

And even if it sends mail, it may be that you’ve taken over a system and the host account is not registered to you.

So, what do you do?

Well, you can’t look in the database for the password because the passwords are hashed. But there are some ways to get back in business.

First, let’s take a look at the easy way. Let’s assume that you have the ability to sign up for a new account with a new password. Go ahead and do that.

Next, open the database and look for the “Users” table. This table has a bit field called, “IsSuperUser.” Set it to t…

Java script Encoder / Decoder

View demo | Download Source

Hi every one i found a thing at internet that is done through encoding and decoding of text through Java script thanks man you will get the full blog there

Here is the class function of encoding

/example of using the html encode object

// set the type of encoding to numerical entities e.g & instead of &
Encoder.EncodeType = "numerical";

// or to set it to encode to html entities e.g & instead of &
Encoder.EncodeType = "entity";

// HTML encode text from an input element
// This will prevent double encoding.
var encoded = Encoder.htmlEncode(document.getElementById('input'));

// To encode but to allow double encoding which means any existing entities such as
// & will be converted to &
var dblEncoded = Encoder.htmlEncode(document.getElementById('input'),true);

// Decode the now encoded text
var decoded = Encoder.htmlDecode(encoded);

// Check whether the text still co…

Coda-Slider with Autoplay or Auto slider Code - Jquery Slider

View Demo | Download Source

Hi All,
While reading along in some of the forums (located here:, I noticed some are wanting an “auto-slide” feature for this thing (great job by the way Niall Doherty).

Here’s how you do it:

Modify the js code included in the page’s header into this:

"User script tag here"
var count =1;
jQuery(window).bind("load", function() {jQuery("div#slider1").codaSlider(); setInterval("moreSnow()", 2000);});
function moreSnow()
if (count < 4)

count = count +1;
count = 1;


here you change if (count < 4) number of banners as per your banner count like if you have 5 banners then put 6 here and if you have 6 then put 7 i have 3 banners so i put 4

also change the body section
Panel 1

i add the id="panel1" in the code that will use for auto click in the javascript

now just change all panel id a…

Upgrading dot net nuke

Its simple but you must need the dnn4.8 or later version for updgrading if you are planing to move your dnn 3 or 2 in to dnn 5 then you must upgrade the 3 to 4 and then then 4 to 5

here i just define the upgrading from 4 to 5
Backup Existing Site
Although the XML Merge functionality and DotNetNuke 5.0.0 have been tested a great deal it is VERY, VERY important to take a full site backup before completing an upgrade. This is especially true when going from a 4.x to 5.x installation, due to the massive changes introducted in DotNetNuke 5.0.0. If you are unsure of the process to backup your site, please be sure to read my blog How to Backup a DNN Site, additionally if on a remote hosting provider you can contact your provider for assistance creating the backups.

NOTE: DO NOT CONTINUE if you have not validated a 100% correct backup file. I have tested multiple 5.x upgrad…

HTTP 503 Service Unavailable in IIS 7


I ran into a funky issue with an application on IIS 7 today on my development machine: One of my Web applications simply would not respond to requests and IIS was reporting a 503 Error – Service Unavailable. Oddly enough though the rest of my Web site was working just fine – just this one application/virtual wasn’t working. So at first I tried the usual – restarting IIS with IISReset, to no avail.
After some back and forth with the management console it turns out in IIS 7 that IIS 7 has a confusing option when you create a new Application Pool that ask whether you want to start the Application Pool immediately. This is not real obvious – in IIS 6 there was no such option and the Application Pool started automatically when a virtual/application was accessed for the first time. So when it asks for Start Immediately it’s not clear if the worker process that hosts the Application Pool starts immediately, or what. As it turns out when you s…

Moving DotNetNuke From One Host To Another

Have you built a DotNetNuke site and now want to move DNN to production? Or, are you simply moving a DotNetNuke website from one server to some other server? Over the last month I have seen several searches in the logs from people trying to find instructions on moving a DotNetNuke website from development to production, or simply from one server to another. After looking around for similar detailed instructions, I really did not see anything out there that really explained how to setup a IIS box for DotNetNuke, optimized and ready for production. So, I decided to provide instructions on how we do it…

The following instructions are provided to minimize any downtime of the production domain/website, assuming there is an existing website running. However, the same instructions can be applied for a brand new domain/website that does not have a critical execution plan. These instructions will have a basic assumption that you understand how to manage IIS, DNS, and DNN. While we do not provid…

Web Development Life Cycle

For anyone thinking of developing a medium to large sized website, I hope you
find the following helpful and useful.

For any programmers out there, you may have heard of the Software Development
Life Cycle, well the Website Development Life Cycle is basically the same thing.
A 6-step process.

Those 6 steps are:

1. Website Requirements and Analysis

2. Specification of Requirements

3. Site Structure and Design

4. Website Construction and Testing

5. Marketing (SEO / PPC / etc)

6. Analysis of Statistics and Maintenance.

I will explain each step further. For the purpose of this WDLC tutorial, assume
that the medium - large website will be developed in PHP with a MySQL Database
(this seems to be the most popular; probably because it's good and free).

Step 1. Website Requirements and Analysis.

Running an affiliate website is in-fact the same as running any business. If you
have a solid business plan and you stick to it, your chances of success are far
greater than developing a website with no goals and pl…
