This is a quick cheatsheet for doing things in matrix. For simplicity I opted to go with Postgresql & a pip install for my environment. Adjust accordingly for your installation needs.
Here is my updating script. Adjust accordingly.
#!/bin/bash # Update certs systemctl start httpd /usr/bin/certbot renew --apache --force-renewal cp /etc/letsencrypt/live/matrix.schotty.com/fullchain.pem /opt/synapse/fullchain.pem cp /etc/letsencrypt/live/matrix.schotty.com/privkey.pem /opt/synapse/privkey.pem systemctl stop httpd # Change python environment source /opt/synapse/env3/bin/activate # Stop service systemctl stop matrix-synapse # Update python modules pip3 install --upgrade pip pip3 install --upgrade matrix-synapse[all] # Start service systemctl start matrix-synapse
CHECK CURRENT MATRIX-SYNAPSE VERSION
curl -kv https://server.tld:port/_matrix/client/versions 2>&1 | grep "Server:"
RESET USER'S PASSWORD MANUALLY
The $DB_NAME and $DB_USER can be found in your "homeserver.yaml" configuration file.
Go to where you installed your environment.
cd /opt/matrix/ cd bin ./hash_password
The program will ask you to enter the password and then to confirm. The has that is returned will be needed in the next step, updating it in the database.
Log into your DB
psql -d $DB_NAME -U $DB_USER
synapse=> UPDATE users SET password_hash='$HASH' WHERE name='@USER:HOST.TLD'; <CTL-d> to quit
