Help! Admin login isn't working
Um...not true. I'm also logged onto the database through PHPMyAdmin, and under "Users" I can clearly see the uName, uEmail, and uPassword. A copy and paste eliminates the possibility of typos...and it still won't let me log in.
It also won't email me a new password, even though I tried that as well. What's my next step? Start over?
Here's a guide on that:
Antti / Mainio
In the manual reset you should be really careful that you have:
a) the right password salt from config/site.php
b) exactly the right password in the update command
c) the password and salt in the update command wrapped in the MD5-function (something like uPassword = MD5('your_new_password:PASSWORD_SALT'), PASSWORD_SALT being your site's password salt
With manual updates you really need to check that you haven't missed even one letter there and don't have e.g. extra spaces etc in the update command. It SHOULD work fine after you've done everything as the guide tells.
But great that you got it solved! Just said that if you need this also in the future.
Not a happy bunny.
what seems to have temporaily worked is once in - going to Dashboard > Members > "me" > reset password
it hasnt kicked me yet but not too optimistic...
no news will mean this worked
