The dog_cookie file is only used for installation.

It won't help you for Postgres login etc.

Do you remember if you're using LocalAuth or something else?
Do you know what you changed in the Authentication parameters?

Do you only have a single network defined in WiFiDog Auth Server?
(If you have a second network setup, you might be able to login to it using
the old admin credentials.)

Do you know a working postgresql user?
If so, you can probably install PGAdminIII on the ubuntu console,
connect to the WifiDog DB - and edit the network table. This will
allow you replace the authentication type and the parameters field to
working values.

See: http://www.pgadmin.org/

I'd guess there's a package for Ubuntu so you don't have to compile
it yourself.

Hope that's of some help. I'm not around too much via email, but i'll
do my best to help as I can.
