Loving Open-Souce One Anonymous Function at a Time.

Sometimes you just can't remember what you set it to, or like me, you restore from an SQL file that you never knew the password for. Anyway, python to the rescue.

> python manage.py shell


from django.contrib.auth.models import User

u = User.objects.all()
u=User.objects.get(username__exact=’admin’)
u.set_password(‘whatever’);
u.save()
