How do I reset the ColdFusion Administrator password?

If you forget the password to your ColdFusion MX Administrator, navigate to the cfusionmx7/lib folder and find the file named neo-security.xml. Create a copy of this file. Then open the original and find this node in the XML:

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

Change true to false, restart your ColdFusion server, then immediately login and set up a new password.
