Unless I'm missing something here, it is left up to you to protect your admin area. The best way to do this is using .htaccess.

 

Because of this, there will be no admin password in your oscommerce mysql database.

Ok.

 

What I'm trying to say is that oscommerce does not control the protection of your admin area.

 

It is the owner's responsibility to password protect the admin area.

 

In other words, we cannot help you reset your password because we do not know how you set up the admin password protection in the first place.

My oscommerce package was an auto install via my server control pannel. Before the install took place I was asked to fill in a few details like shop name, shop email etc. So in the admin section under my store I expected to see something like change password. Any idea's how I can change the password.

It sounds like you have a cPanel hosting account.

 

If so, then the following would happen when you visit the admin area:

 

a small popup window will pop up, saying enter your username and password.

 

This is a form of password protection known as .htaccess.

 

Are you using a cPanel hosting account? If so I may be able to help you, if not, then I won't be able to.

You can easily reset your password by (this is only a rough guide because it depends on what cpanel skin you have):

 

- Logging into your cPanel

- Selecting an option which reads something like Web Protect or Password Protection.

- Navigate to your oscommerce folder by clicking on the icon next to the folder name.

- You should now see your admin folder. This time click on the admin folder's name.

- Now you should see some info regarding the password protection of this folder.

- Down the bottom of the page you should see your username. Select it, and type a new password then click Change Password.

 

Done!

Thanx worked fine. For some reason I thought it was something more complex than a simple password protected directory.
