If you know the password, you can change it in the CF Administrator. I'm assuming you don't know the password. In this case, you'll need to stop the CF service, go to the filesystem and change {your CF version}\cfusion\lib\neo-security.xml to disable the admin password, restart the CF service, then configure password settings in CF Administrator as desired.

Or since cf10 there has been the new passwordreset script in cfusion/bin (as opposed to editing that xml file). That, too, requires a restart, though. More at:

Forgotten password and cannot log in to ColdFusion administrator

Thanks Charlie!

I do know the password, I just need to change it. I see where to change it in CF Administrator under Security, Administrator.

Does changing the password this way require a CF service restart? Does it interrupt user operations?

Changing it in the admin takes effect immediately. No restart needed.
