Don’t panic. You can easily recover lost passwords if you follow the steps mentioned below:

1. Download a latest version of ClipBucket installation package by providing your email address.

2. The name of the downloaded ClipBucket package will be clipbucket-2.6-r738-security-fixed.ZIP. Extract it and you will view a folder named  – do not upload

3. There will be one PHP file named admin_change_pass.php inside the above folder.
