Not Solved Admin lockout after 5 attempts
#2
Not Solved
Hi Alan.

If you have access to your mysql db in your server run this query to reset your password to test

UPDATE `mybb_users` SET `password` = '098f6bcd4621d373cade4e832627b4f6', `salt` = '' WHERE `uid` = 'X' 

Change the X for your user id which if you were the first member will be 1

Then you can try to log in using your username and the test password. if you manage to get in please please change your password to a secure one you can remember.

to change the admin email. go to phpadmin in your server, click mybb_settings and look for "Admin Email" and click edit. then enter your email address and click save.

that should sort everything out.
