    I got DNN project from a client. I got complete source code and database. I set it up on azure server. I did not get cms login details.

    How i can get cms login details? login link and username and password, can i get from database?

    Is there any way we can get login details?

      superuser name and password should be provided to you by your client.
      there is an option to register a new account and grant superuser status using the database, but that should be avoided, if possible.

        To give my two cents: You can get the usernames from a table in the database ("Users"), but passwords are normally hashed, so chances are bad to get them...

        Happy DNNing!

          If you have no other option, registering a new user and then promoting the user to Superuser is a possibility.

          To create a new user, you need to have the Register link available. If it is not available, you'll need to change the setting Registration_RegistrationFormType in PortalSettings for your PortalID. I believe the choices are 0,1 and 2. It's best to set up a clean install of DNN where you can experiment to see which value you need.

          After creating a new user, set IsSuperUser for that user in the Users table.

          Then, restarting the website should let you login as this user as a Superuser. It's probably good idea then to reset the password for the original superuser account(s) and delete the new one.
