How to reset the 'admin' user password in BRU Server

I need to reset the admin user password on my BRU Server server.

To reset the admin user's password, you must have administrative access to the server system. Follow these steps to change the password:

Open a Terminal window and type:

$ sudo /usr/local/bru-server/server --password

You will be prompted for a new BRU Server admin password. We do not recommend that you make this the same as your system's admin user password. Do not worry if you get it mixed up - you can simply re-run the command and change it again. Once you've changed the password, you will need to stop and restart the server daemon as follows:

$ sudo /usr/local/bru-server/server --kill

(wait 2 minutes)

$ sudo /usr/local/bru-server/server

Note that there is no '--' argument for the second command. Your new password will be in effect and you will be able to login to the system via the GUI or the command line tools.
