I inherited a WHD server - which has been working fine, until yesterday. We upgraded both Active Directory domain controllers, and since then, WHD cannot authenticate to AD. Based on other things I've fixed, I think the prior admin keyed in the AD server name or IP address statically. So, got a rock and a hard place - I can't log into WHD to fix it, and I can't fix it until I can log into WHD. I've got a ticket open with SW, but is there a local login pre-set that I could use to get in and fix it, or a configuration file where this is set? I really don't want to rebuild the server and try and import the data.. too many other huge projects going on right now.
Go into the TECH table and find the row with the admin account name (USER_NAME column) change the 1 in the USE_LDAP_AUTHENTICATION to 0 or NULL then in the PASSWORD column for that row clear out the content of that cell and type in a password.
Save the changes and you should be able to login
