We recently explained how to install Glype, the free web-based proxy script, on your webserver or hosting space, configure it, and then secure it. In this post, let us look at how to reset Glype admin password in case you get locked out of it. Unfortunately, the Glype settings page does not allow you to set / change the username or password of your Glype web proxy. It requires a small bit of file editing. After following our installation guides, we received emails from few people who were locked out of their admin accounts. So here is how your reset Glype admin password.

To reset Glype admin password, all you have to do is find and edit the
