It depends on WCS's version. in 5.1,you can use following steps to recover password if you can remember your root username:

1. Change to the WCS bin folder.

2. Enter "passwd root-user " to change the WCS root password. The newpassword is the

root login password you choose.

pls. refer to following link for detail:

Previous versions are the same:

Step 1 Change to the WCS bin folder.

Step 2 Perform one of the following:

Enter passwd root-user to change the WCS root password. The newpassword is the root login password you choose.

or

Enter passwd location-ftp-user to change the FTP user and password. The newuser and newpassword are the FTP user and password you choose.

Step 3 The following options are available with these commands:

•-q - to quiet the output

•-pause - to pause before exiting

•-gui - to switch to the graphical user interface

•-force - to skip prompting for configuration

Step 4 Start WCS.
