Change password of a user in Django
Start by opening the Django shell from your terminal
> python manage.py shell
Then inside the Django shell, first get hold of that user object, then change the password and save.
from django.contrib.auth.models import User u = User.objects.get(pk=id_of_desired_user) u.set_password('new password') u.save()
The user is looked up by primary key in this example. But the lookup can be based on user name, email or any other attribute.
