Hello,

Firstly thanks in advance for anyone willing to take the time to help me, I appreciate it.

I have had my Magento system working for many months, however I came to login to the Admin panel 3 days ago and my password wouldn’t working, thinking I was going crazy I did a forgotten password.

Then again the following day, I come to login and the same password isn’t working, the same has happened today.

I am the only one able to access the system, is it possible that something else is changing the password or am I being hacked each day?

Kind Regards,

I know how to update the password, thanks for your help anyway, I do now have access to my system again.

The problem is why it became a problem in the first place, how does my password keep changing?

Thanks,
