How to reset Dot net nuke / DNN host Password

============ 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 true.

Now, log in as that user via DNN and you should be able to administer your system. I’d go ahead and reset the original host and admin passwords.

If you haven’t allowed public signup for any of your DNN sites, you’ll have to enable public access by going into the database and looking for the “Portals” table.

In the “Portals” table there is a field called “UserRegistration.” If you set this field to 2, you will be able to sign up as a new user.

Of course, if you don’t have access to the database, you are stuck. But, if you don’t have access to the database, you probably have no business trying to retrieve the host password either.

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed

Dear Readers
if you get the error

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed


Here is the solution 
Get a command prompt in administrator mode and go to C:\Windows\Microsoft .NET\FrameWork64\v4.xxx
and run aspnet_regiis -r. This will re-register the right libraries. It has happened twice already to me.
For other frameworks (32 bit or other versions of .net make sure you go to the correct folder (i.e. Framework/v2.xxx, etc.)

xxxx is the the number which is present with the folder name so i suggest you guys to check the folder name in your directory

If "run aspnet_regiis -r" is not working and if you get the error run is not recognized command then just type " aspnet_regiis -r" it will run fine

Reason of problem
Your asp.net frame work has been change may be you have install the lower version on the higher version or may be because of any reason you have register another version in your IIS, in my cas…
