For the moment it is possible to set the password manually via the browser's JavaScript? Console:

1) Determine the ID of the "admin" User Account. You can do so in the Webclient by searching for "admin" and then revealing the respective topic (top hat icon). Now you can read the topic ID in the browser URL (.../topic/<id>).

2) In the browser's JavaScript? Console issue this command while replacing a) the topic ID, and b) the new plain text password:

    id: 2342,
    type_uri: "dm4.accesscontrol.user_account",
    composite: {
        "dm4.accesscontrol.password": {
            type_uri: "dm4.accesscontrol.password",
            value: "new password"

This encrypts the password at client-side and updates it on the server. (The change is also reflected in the topic map.)

The new password is now in effect. Logout and try.

It's just a woraround. The original problem will be fixed soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
