CMS Made Simple Admin password recoveryPrevious article Next article
Oops, you forgot your CMS Made Simple™ Admin credentials... Now what?
This video tutorial shows you how to find out your user name, reset your password and give you access to the Admin panel again.
The video shows you:
- how to reset the Admin password by using the "Forgot your password" feature,
- set/change the mail address in the database for the Admin user and
- reset the password with a SQL query.
If you can't remember your user name either, once in the database you can read it in the cms_users table!
You can find the database credentials in the CMSMS™ config.php file in the root of the website.
With this universal database query you can reset the password:
Just change the required password and the matching Admin user name. The example query used in the video is:
Afterwards the user "cmsmsadmin" could log into the CMSMS Admin panel again with the temporary pass "chang3m3" and updated his credentials at My Preferences >> My Account
In this tutorial I assume the database prefix has the default value "cms_". If this is changed in your install, see the config.php file, you need to change the prefix in all code used in this article.
