Reset Joomla Administrator

If you have forgotten your joomla super administrator password and cannot access the joomla admin page want to reset it.Then here is a simple solution for you.

Step 1

Go to your  mysql database. Find the table #_users .Then browse and edit the super administrator row.

 


Step 2

Generate a encrypted password. Suppose I need to change my password to admin, so I need to add the encrypted md5(admin) . To do that you can use an online website http://www.md5.cz/ . Write down the password you want to set and get the md5 of it. As  I wanted to have admin as my password so I need to update the password field at mysql database to 21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3 .

Once you change it, go to yourwebsite.com/administrator and login into the website. If you still need assistance , then you can contact us.
