Full Version: Admin password reset issue
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I have lost my admin password and I am unable to reset it. I have access to the mysql and ran the command as suggested in other thread. But it still does not work and I am still unable to login to my admin account.

UPDATE mybb5l_users SET salt = '', password = '098f6bcd4621d373cade4e832627b4f6' WHERE uid = '1'

Please help.
This is a common issue, try this query instead of adding a hash
UPDATE `mybb_users` SET `salt` = '', `password` = 'YOUR_PASSWORD' WHERE `uid` = '1';
Thank you! Using real password instead of hash works.
