Hello guys,

I've installed the FreeBSD 11.2, however I've forgot the password I've set during the installation process.

Is a way to re-set it ? For example booting as single user mode ?

Thanks very much.

Vincenzo.

Yep, boot to single user mode. Make the filesystem read/write, set the password.
