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.
