Reset Admin password...but what is the new admin password?
« on: February 05, 2023, 11:14:29 AM »
I am recovering my Admin password. I get the link, click it, enter my user name and Captcha code and then I get the message
Quote
Your password has been reset. Now you can login with your new password
back to login page
and I get an email
Quote
Your administration password was successfully reset!
But none of these messages tell me what the new password is. So how do I recover the password?

Hello.
What is your AbanteCart version? In the latest version when you click to reset your password and enter your username with the email you should get an email with link.
Click the link and enter a new password

Hello.
The latest version is 1.3.3 not sure what is the difference. You can try something like this https://forum.abantecart.com/index.php?topic=547.0

Hi Tim,

two things -  first  perhaps it is a typo  but I think you are on cart version 1.2.16  not 1.2.6

Secondly,  if you have your installation attached to softaculous via your cpanel   you can change your admin password there.

See how  https://why2central.net/knowledgebase/reset-admin-password/

Yes, apologies, it is a typo, 1.2.16. Not on Softalicious though, it was a self-install.

If you have cPanel and Softaculous,  you can import an existing AbanteCart installation  to Softaculous. You will not need to know your Admin password.  Only need to be on the Softaculous app within your cPanel.

Here's the instructions:

Yes,  i understood previously  that you installed manually. 

BUT,  if you have cPanel and Softaculous  you can import your current installation into Softaculous for better management.   It is NOT a new installation,  it is an import of the existing installation.  Nothing will change, in your current installation.  It just allows you to do more things, with less hassle.

If you have Softaculous in your cPanel,  this will add the ability to change your admin password  which is your current issue.   It will also add the ability to clone or stage your existing site to test what is any issue you may have in updating your cart version or just testing out something new  -  all WITHOUT impacting your existing site.

OK I misunderstood, I thought you could not import an existing site. I imported into Softaculous, but even after changing the Admin password in there, I still cannot login.

All of the suggestions here have failed. Is there a way to manually override a new password directly into the datbase?
