In case if you come across an issue where client is asking for resetting the miva admin password or complaints that password is lost, you carry out the following steps to reset the password:

Create the pre-provide.xml provisioning file in the MIVA Data directory. To create the pre-provide.xml, login to the server traverse to the miva_data or mivadata folder (whichever is created - this should be generally in the cgi-bin folder or 'above' the 'Document Root Folder' of the website).

Pico pre-provide.xml
and add the following text, save and exit Pico:
Code:

<Provision> 
   <Domain>     
      <User_Add>        
         <Name>temp</Name>        
         <Password>temp</Password>        
         <DefaultPagination>1000</DefaultPagination>        
         <Administrator>1</Administrator>        
         <CanCreateUsers>1</CanCreateUsers>        
         <StartInSimpleMode>0</StartInSimpleMode>     
      </User_Add> 
   </Domain> 
</Provision>


Now Accessing the MIVA Merchant admin.mvc file in a browser will activate the provisioning behind the scenes and create a new user you can login with.

go to the login screen and login using:

Login: temp
Password: temp

Click stores > users reset the password for the actual admin user, then logout again relogin with the actual admin login details and delete the 'temp' user that was created (this will delete the 'pre-provide.dat' that you created).
Your admin password is reset!!!
