    Default Password Recovery

    I've been working on a simple process which enables a user to reset their password if they forget it.
    The user has the option to change their password at any time, and this is a single user application.

    Reset entails logging in as user name = Recovery with a simple password I can supply.
    Then, the single user is deleted and a new one added (same details as originally shipped)

    When logging in next time, the basic password as shipped is the current one.

    Seems to work OK, but is there a method of getting the Exported Groups and Passwords etc back into the database?
    I will need that for a multi user system.

    Will the A5_Add_New_Group() and A5_Add_New_User() work for you?
