How to reset the admin password if you've forgotten it


You've forgotten the admin password to your installation


1) Try the forgot password form on

2) If you can't remember the email address or it's invalid, you can reset it directly via the database.

- Login via your MySQL client such as phpMyAdmin.
- Execute the following sql on your database, replace ADMIN_USER with your admin username (usually 'admin') and NEW_PASSWORD with your new password.

UPDATE users SET password = MD5('NEW_PASSWORD') WHERE username='ADMIN_USER';

For example:

UPDATE users SET password = MD5('myp455w0rd') WHERE username='admin';
