I forgot my password for login of the stand alone backup. What can I do to get a new password and access again?

Thanks, best regards

There is no password recovery but you can do a partial re–installation.

Delete the Solo/assets/private/config.php file. Solo will let you install it again, part of which is setting up your user account including the password. It does not overwrite the database contents. This should allow you to get back into your Solo installation.
