How to reset admin password if you forget it


Recommended Posts

Today when I try to login to my oscommerce account it was locked.


I was shocked for sometime and think of all possible passwords.But no use :blink:



After few minutes of thinking I just got an idea :


1. Create a new customer eg: salih and password eg: anitha in my site.


2. Login to my phpmyadmin and goto customers table.


3. Look for the customer Salih and copy the encrypted password.


4. Goto Administrator table and update that password with which I copy from customer table.


5. Goto backoffice of my admin panel and login using my password anitha.



Its cool!
