Aftab,

 

 

Using phpmyadmin in your hosting control panel, truncate the administrators table.

 

 

Then, log back into your admin area, it will instruct you to create a NEW admin username and password. Do as instructed and log in as normal.

 

 

If you have enabled .htaccess protection, you will need to edit the /admin/.htaccess file and remove the protection line.

DunWeb, thanks that seems to have worked, but i am now getting the following error:

 

Warning: main(C:/xampp/htdocs/oscommercenew/catalog/includes/classes/action_recorder.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /homepages/29/d116169/htdocs/mdz/md/admin/includes/classes/action_recorder.php on line 13

Not sure why, but i am guessing might have something to do with what i have defined in the config file.

Hi,

 

DunWeb at all

 

I've followed your instruction but I'm still getting the "A user name and password are being requested by http://www.xxx.com. The site says: "osCommerce Online Merchant Administration Tool" error

 

I found the right database & trucated the password. Then you say "Then, log back into your admin area, it will instruct you to create a NEW admin username and password. Do as instructed and log in as normal"

 

Unfortunately, I'm unable to do so because when I try to log into osCommerce (Online Merchant Administration Tool) get the pop up password box. I have previously enabled the extra password security measure from within the Admin dashboard.

 

I also tried the solution with inserting the line into administrators table from within the phpMyAdmin. While the new details

were successfullyinserted that didn't work either.

 

Any suggestions how to change the apssword will be much appreciated.

 

Cheers

Hi Satish,

 

I've tried the script but unfortunately it did not work. I'm getting the following error message:

 

Warning: require_once(includes/configure.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/xxx/public_html/xxx_store/reset.php on line 6

 

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/configure.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lsphp-5.2.17/lib/php') in /home/xxx/public_html/xxx_store/reset.php on line 6

 

It looks like it may be having problems with accessing appropriate files and directories under v 2.3.1?

 

Any suggestions?

 

Cheers

 

Barb
