Where can I find the ColdFusion administrator page password in the server (in which folder I can find it) and how to view it (if it is cryptic).

{CF_INSTANCE_ROOT}\lib\neo-security.xml

You can edit this to disable CF Administrator security. Your CF instance root will be something like C:\ColdFusion2016\cfusion

And Sai, in case you have trouble making use of that encrypted password string in that file, note that CF10 added a passwordreset script (found in cfusion\bin). It would require a CF restart to take effect (and should be run in a command prompt that you “run as admin”). There are various posts on the web about this, such as:
