Hello, So im trying to login into the admin CP for my, MyBB forum and its saying invaldid username or password even though i opened the config.php and checked what is was. Turns out i put the correct stuff but its still not working
Anyone have a fix?  Undecided
Admin username and password aren't in the config file, they are in the database: it's an user account belonging to Administrator group.
The only thing you can have in the config file is $config['super_admins'] which gives the super admins uid.

also how do i find my secret pin
Your login is your login in mybb, just check the #1 user login.
If your browser auto-fill your form: remove the record from your browser or try with another browser.

The secret pin is in inc/config.php.
