Admin Password

Hi,

Can anyone say how to reset the /admin password. This doesn’t seem to work.

update oxuser set OXPASSWORD = md5(‘new_passwd’) where oxid=‘oxdefaultadmin’;

Thanks

Change the name to an email adress and use the passwort forgotten funktion in the frontend.

Or change an existing account to an admin account in the database.

Due to encription i think it will be very difficult to create a working encrypted password by yourself.
CYA

Hi,

Firefax is right. MD5 doesn’t work because a SALT hash is additionally used that is different for every single user.

When you write an article about that in you time machine like blog :smiley: - don’t forget to link to it in the tutorial section of OXIDforge :wink:

Ok, so you say you forgot your Windows administrator’s password, huh? Oh well, it doesn’t really matter if you did or you just say you did. The fact is that you need to gain access to a computer and you cannot “remember” the administrator’s password. How can you get out of this situation without formatting and re-installing the operating system?

Hi MArry,

How can you get out of this situation without formatting and re-installing the operating system?

Even this is possible :wink:

Passwords have to be stored somehow and somewhere. Knowing the encryption method and the exact place and having the correct access permissions, it would be possible to replace the admin password without touching a file :wink:

Really, I think questions about authentification in a board like this are dangerous. Specially workarounds.

Go to a service provider. He have the possibility, to check the domain of the shop and compare the registred holder with your name.

… and yes, who have control over the database can do a lot of stuff and normally should be the right person to do this.

…but somebody who forget a password like this - normally these password you need every day - maybe dont configured the database well.

Sorry, perhaps you are not the problem, but other who can read this thread.
