WHAT IF I FORGET MY USER PASSWORD? CAN I RESET MY PASSWORD? If you have unfortunately forgotten your user password, it can be a bit of a pain on our behalf to figure out who you are and to ensure that your request to 'reset' your password is legitimate. BEFORE YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN YOUR PASSWORD login to the maintenance shell (type chfn or chsh) and select the 'set up password recovery'. When you have forgotten your password, you can then login as 'new' and type 'recover' (the menu option is not listed). To disable password recovery, login to the maintenance shell and provide an empty answer to a question. If you have not setup recovery, you may politely (and with patience) contact membership (at) sdf.org or send a letter to the SDF mailbox. You may consider making a donation at that time, as it will greatly improve your chances of getting a password 'reset'. Please note that the password recovery mechanism is not yet available on 'sdf-eu.org', but will be in the future.
