How do I reset my admin password?

Solution

If you have forgotten or lost your admin panel password then you can reset it by following the steps below. It can not be recovered as it is stored using one-way encryption for security.

1. Open phpMyAdmin (or similar).
2. Navigate to the Admins table.
3. Find the password field for your own row.
4. Replace its value with this: $2y$10$SVXYIAnlSCNFPLFswrkT/OEse9gZAs1n8cXVhpd6DK3R5xPnlTdxC
5. Save the change. Now your password is 'secret'.
6. Log in to your admin panel.
7. Change your password in Settings -> Administrator.
