You can force a password change by running UPDATE user SET user_password_expires = '19990101000000'; (This is not the same as a password reset as it will accept the old password one time. Less secure, more forgiving.) If you cannot be bothered to look up the DB password, you can just use maintenance/sql.php.


Can you perform a query? UPDATE the_table SET password='UserNeedsToResetPassword'; Now all users' passwords dont work anymore. I choose plain text, because I cant think of a way that sha1($_POST['pass']) results in this ;) (or whatever hash you use)
