Admin login retrieval

Admin login retrieval

Is there an option to retrieve the admin password for a new Phoenix install ?
I managed to get to creating the install, demo fruit site etc.
I can't get beyond the admin login screen even though I believe I'm using the correct info.

I still have the install folders all in place etc. so maybe that's it.

Thanks for any help.

No

  1. You will need to delete the admin user from the administrators table using phpmyadmin.
  2. You may also need to delete the user:password from the admin/htpasswd_oscommerce file and from the admin/htaccess file
    both of which would be obvious what to remove when looking at them

All I had to do was delete the admin from the database then go back to the admin login and it asks to create a new one. It was that simple.
It was a totally new, clean install without any users or items.

Re. the lost admin password retrieval link :

The "youradmin/.htpasswd_oscommerce" didnt exist.

The "youradmin/.htaccess" didn't have the required lines to delete.

Do I need to remove the install dir and set the includes/configure.php to read only, even when I might want / need to reinstall ?
This is just a test site and not the final domain location.

Ok, great stuff. Looks like I have some reading to do. 
All customers are conspicuous by their pending covid lockdown so I think I'll have some time !
Thanks for your patience Heather and Burt.
