Admin Password - lost or corrupt


Guest

Recommended Posts

:blush:

 

Hi All,

 

I have either forgotten my password or some sort of corruption has occurred but I

can not get into the admin section of my site.

 

Is there a way of hacking into check or change the password. I have access

to the files and to MySql tables.

 

Any help will be appreciated as I don't want to have to rebuild the site from scratch.

 

Cheers

 

Anthony

It all depends on how you set up the password in the first place. If you used a contribution you can edit those files, if you used htacces and htpasswd files you can edit those or you can go into your hosts control panel and see if they have a link to password protect a directory. Most do, then it would overwrite the htaccess files.

 

Good luck
