Posted by Robert on 14 December 2009 05:16 AM

In order to reset PHPAuction administrator's password please follow these steps:

1. Log in Cpanel and go to PhpMyAdmin

2. Once in phpMyAdmin select the PHPAuction database from the drop-down menu at left. The page will refresh and the database's tables will be displayed on it. Open the SQL tab (look at the top navigation bar).

In the text field write the following SQL query:

UPDATE `PHPAUCTION_adminusers` SET `password` = MD5( 'new_password_here' ) WHERE `PHPAUCTION_adminusers`.`username` = "admin_username";

"new_password_here" - replace this with the new password you wish to use.
"admin_username" - replace this with the username the password should be updated for.

Once you are ready, click on the GO button to submit the query. If everything goes fine without errors, you should be able to login to PHPAuction with the new password.
