where PASSWORD is your new temporary password in plain text. I do not
think you need to restart GeoServer.
This technique is also useful for scripted installations of GeoServer.
Because storing passwords in plain text is a bad practice, you should
log in and change the admin password again to ensure it is stored as a
digest (cryptographic hash), not as plain text: under Security /
Users/Groups/Roles / Users/Groups / click on admin / fill in a new
password (twice) and press Save.
Check security/usergroup/default/users.xml to satisfy yourself that the
password digest is now stored (not plain text).
