Reset Admin Password help pls


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,



I had someone work on my site a long time back and it appears I have the wrong admin password documented.


I have tried to use the link here http://www.oscommerce-template-easy.com/ge...in-password.htm

Which basically has you edit the contents of the file and replace the password portion with a new encrypted password of your choice. I did this with both the password and even the user name but I still can not get into my admin panel. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips?



Thank you,

Do you have password protection set at directory level?


You can check this from your ISPs admin area, normally called something like password protect your directories.

Solution for v2.2 RC2 not set at directory level


1. Log into your MySQL database

2. Navigate to 'administrators' table

3. Delete all rows, leave table and structure alone

4. Log into your admin, ex. www.mydomain.com/catalog/admin

5. Enter your new user name and password


Hope this helps!
