@Ivan Holbi why didn't the system create a new and needed email token when we change the email from within admin?

and can  osCommecer's please address this as I can't get into my site and to do a new installation will lose at lest a weeks work.

The current osCommerce version does not allow you to change the admin login.

So, your have two options:

1) Reinstall osCommerce.

2) Edit admin table, find your record and change your email to the original one in the column admin_email_address. Then your previous login will be restored.

To change your login, you have to create another admin with new email.

OK, but then can i suggest on the next up date you then remove the option to be able to change it within the admin that may help.

What about when you don't have access to admin? My login was working yesterday. I tried it today and can't get in. Is the only choice to re-install?

is it because you changed your login details?

No. I haven't even touched the account details since it was installed. I was playing around with a template change when I stopped. IO tried logging in today to continue and found I couldn't. After several attempts I tried the reset option on the page but it just reloads the page and doesn't do anything.

V2 shops allowed the administration table to be cleared so a new login could be created via admin. I asked for this well over a year ago but it was never implemented, as far as I know. It is a fairly often thing to happen on older shops so being able to change the login outside of the admin is important.

yep. I had to reinstall and lost a weeks worth of work (OK not as much as a fully qualified developer would of done). so am just going to reinstall again for the last time before going live and will make sure i make a second admin to cover myself if this happens again.

No. I haven't seen that. I finally got locked out due to too many retries. I reset the count in the database to get around that but it still fails. I also have the captcha option disabled in the database but it is still showing on the page. This problem really should be a priority, in my opinion.

You probably forgot your password.
But there really is an error when recovering the password. To fix it replace lib/backend/controllers/LoginController.php with the attached one.

This is a very insecure feature. We deliberately abandoned it.

No. The browser has it recorded but I also have it saved from the original email when the account was created. I tried copy/paste and typing it in but none worked.

I tried it but it still doesn't work. Using the forgotten option does go farther and I get a checkmark showing that worked. But when I tried to login it still failed. The forgotten option doesn't reset the retry count so I also got locked out and had to reset the database. But starting over after doing that still failed the same way.

Understood. I was just saying there needs to be a way to login when all else fails. The forgotten password will be a good option once it works.

What have been your most recent changes?

Did you change anything in the configuration files?

To investigate this issue I need an FTP access to your site.
