resetUserEmail.php file is a maintenance script to change the email address of users on the wiki, and mark the email address as confirmed. In addition to that, it will set a random password on that account. This will require the user to reset his/her password in order to be able to login again.

This can be used to set or change an email address on an account that doesn't have a confirmed email address or the email address is no longer accessible. This can also be used to effectively lock an account by setting the email address to a fake one, since it also resets the password.



Option/Parameter Description
--no-reset-password Don't reset the user's password. Defaults to false so that, double negation, the password by default does get reset.
--dbuser The DB user to use for this script
--dbpass The password to use for this script
Username or user ID, if starts with #.
