How can I change a user's password from the command line using Drush?
In Drush 9, the command is
drush user:password USERNAME "SOMEPASSWORD"; its aliases are user-password and upwd.
In Drush 8 (and earlier) the command is
drush user-password USERNAME --password="SOMEPASSWORD"; its alias is upwd.
You can execute
drush uli, this will generate a one time login link.
By default it provides one-time login link for administrator.
If you execute
drush uli some-username, this will generate one time login link for that user.
You can also use
drush upwd for updating the password. Use it like this
drush upwd --password=<new password> <some-username>
$ drush help user-password (Re)Set the password for the user account with the specified name.
Examples: drush user-password someuser --password="correct horse battery" Set the password for the username someuser. @see xkcd.com/936
Arguments: name The name of the account to modify.
Options: --password= The new password for the account. Required.
in New version of Drush(In Drush 9 Drupal > 8.5 ) it doesn't work with
drush user-password USERNAME --password="SOMEPASSWORD"
It must be
drush user-password USERNAME SOMEPASSWORD
for example ( change password of root user)
drush user-password root MyPass0302
And with Drupal Console
then enter userid,
then type new password.
in Drush > 9
drush upwd USERNAME PASSWORD
If you have ssh access to the server, cd to the drupal root directory and run:
drush upwd --password="myNewSecretPassword" "admin"
Note that this command has changed in Drush 9.x, but can be found documented here
The syntax thus looks like this:
drush user:password someuser "correct horse battery staple"
For example, on the user 'bjenkins' it would be:
drush user:password bjenkins "newReallyComplexPassword123!"
You can also add a
--notify command to notify the user of this password change to their registered email.
Here you can generate the query and run it in your Drupal Database then the password will be reset http://btobac.com/reset-drupal-admin-password-mysql-query-phpmyadmin
