Forgot password

Post by simcfc73b » Mon Mar 10, 2014 5:46 pm

Hi,

I have been creating a FAQ for my school with this product and its playing really well but when I changed the password I seem to have messed up and I can't get back into it.

Looking at previous posts about this the tables are different or I have been changing the wrong bits.

I found the username and password in the table faqfaquserlogin`

When I change the password using the MD5 it still doesn't like it.

Can anyone offer advise please

Hi,

the default password encryption type in 2.8 is "hash", please use that and create a new password.

Hi,

I am missing something here.

I went to http://www.miraclesalad.com/webtools/md5.php and created a hash for my password an ran a update query using

UPDATE `faqfaquserlogin`
set pass='a497527b191e66dc765837f52571b14ca'
where login='admin'

but its still not letting me on with the admin logon.

is this the right way I should be doing this?

Hi,

why not use the forgot password form of phpMyFAQ?

Hi,

you don't have to set up anything, just click on login and then on "forgot password"
