Lost ColdFusion Administrator Password

Go to C:\CFusionMX\lib\neo-security.xml in a text editor. Locate the following code ...

<var name="">
<boolean value="true" />

change the boolean value from true to false. Then restart the ColdFusion Service. This should let you in to your server again.

Then set the cfadmin password, submit changes without checking "Use a ColdFusion Administrator Password".
RE-visit the page and select the checkbox, submit. This will log you out but you will be able to use your new password.
