Hi all,

I have seen some post here about the lost ADMIN password problem, and how one can use and update SQL statement to create a new password. For older versions of Magento this works fine, but how do I “reset” the admin password for a 1.1.x installation.

The “Lost password” option doesn’t work, since I get that the email I enter can’t be found, eventhough I copy it directly from the database.

The MD5 hash for the password in the admin_user table seems to have some kind of checksum YY at the end xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:YY

I used da_DK locale and read the posts about emails not being send and foreign locales, so I changed it to en_US, but still no email.

Customers can get their passwords resend - no problem.

I have also tried to use the domain.com/index.php/admin without success.

Hope someone can explain how this could be fixed once for all for the 1.1.x versions.

Regards

Eilskov

Nevermind, Found the problem.  Just had to set the function to MD-5.
