How to: Reset phpBB admin password

Postby chicagotech » Tue Jan 23, 2007 5:44 pm

I have two admin login IDs. For some reasons, I can’t login them this morning. After search Google, I got a solution. The following steps are how I change the phpbb admin password.

1. Login the hosting control panel.
2. Click phhMyAdmin.
3. In the phpMyAdmin, select the database, in my case it is netforums.
4. Click on phpbb_users and the select Browse on the top.
5. Find the username and click Edit.
6. From the user_password row, click the Function pull down menu and select MD5.
7. In the Value line, type your new password in plain text over the existing encrypted password.
8. Click the GO button located in the bottom of the page to save the change.
