Reset my password on local?

Permalink 4 users found helpful
Well, this is pretty embarrassing. I'm working on my local computer (localhost and wamp) and I can't seem to get into my backend of Concrete5. My saved password apparently is incorrect and the reset password email won't work. Is there any other way to force a password reset?

You've probably figured this out already, but in case anyone else stumbles by this thread:

Check the 'logs' table in your database directly after attempting to reset your password by having it mailed to you. The body of the message should be there.

Thanks!

That saved me from having to re-install!

Hey thanks for this, I've been using C5 for a only a couple of days and after restarting my machine, couldn't get back in to the site. It really baffled me because I wrote all the password etc down, turns out that the user name is not my email address that I entered, but rather the username "admin"... confusing for a newbie like me I guess.

Thanks grgcnnr! I already reinstalled and imported the database once for this issue, so this was a big timesaver. I am similarly using MAMP (vs wamp), and I have not found a reason I suddenly cannot log in. But this is a great fix for not having email.

Thanks again

Where and what is this table actually called?

I found LOGS.PHP in 2 locations

/public_html/concrete/controllers/dashboard/reports/logs.php
and
/public_html/concrete/single_pages/dashboard/reports/logs.php

Damned if I can find anything that looks like a table.

I am in desperate need to get into my site and I really need help guys!

It's not a php file, it's in the actual database.

You'll need to access phpMyadmin to see all the tables.

Hope that helps ;)
