Resetting a User's Password
If you have access to the Moodle application server, you can use the
admin/cli/reset_password.php command to reset passwords for users with the manual authentication method.
To run this script (from the moodle root code directory), you may need to sudo as a user with write privileges to the
php admin/cli/reset_password.php == Password reset == Enter username (manual authentication only) : moodlewiki Enter new password : moodlewiki

moodlewiki would not be secure enough and by default would throw this error:
Very handy if you are unable to get into the Moodle site for any reason, or need a quick way to reset a user’s password.
