How to change admin password
Maybe I missed it during Setup.pl but is the only way via admin.vars?

Thanks again

Re: How to change admin password
no the recommended way is to after Setup login to the forum then goto User CP > Profile > Edit Profile and you will see
Choose New Password:
Verify New Password:
enter your new password here and then save.

the admin.vars password edit is only if you can not login and you can't reset your password for any reason.
