Forgotten admin password


Im trying to access an intranet folder to add a link to a photo gallery in An Ubuntu server. The problem is that i dont have permissions to change anything in the folder maybe because im not logged in as the administrator and the client has forgotten the administrator password.....what could be the solution

Password cannot be changed remotely, you need physical access to the node. From there boot up in single user mode and change root password.

Learn to use Google, there are practically unlimited Linux resources for you to find. We who answer questions on these forums often use Google to make sure our advice is correct, it is much faster if you do it for yourself.
