    Arrow How to get website admin user & password by phpmyadmin?

    Hi,

    I have lost my user id and password, but my site is running and I have its ftp access as well as phpmyadmin for database (mysql).

    Can anyone guide me how can I know my admin user id & password?

    In phpmyadmin there are these tables-
    ----------------------------
    * Browse web_banner
    * Browse web_cat
    * Browse web_config
    * Browse web_country
    * Browse web_list
    * Browse web_user
    * Browse web_user_temp
    ----------------------------

    Thanks
    Regards

    Good chance that it's the first user in web_user. Although, again, chances are it's encrypted so that people who are in phpMyAdmin cannot see the 'real' password. Although if you know for a fact that the password is setup with md5(); you can recreate the password by doing.

    PHP Code:
    <?php 
    $before_md5 
    'password'
    $after_md5 md5($before_md5);
    echo 
    $after_md5// Presents u with the new hashed pass.
    ?>

    I would say your username would be in web_user and possibly the password but the password may be encrypted. If so then unfortunatly you won't be able to recover your original password.

    I found the admin detail in this table:

    web_config-

    -----------------------------
    site_title : varchar(100) :

    site_url : varchar(100): http://mysite.com/web/

    site_email : varchar(100): info@mysite.com

    site_pass : varchar(100) : 21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3

    site_theme : varchar(100) : testing

    site_ip : varchar(100) : 127.0.0.1

    ---------------------------------------------

    I tried to change this encoded password as well as to use forget password option, but did not get success. Its not recognizing email and not accepting password.

    Thanks

    You should look into the login system, and see how they compare the password, and then hook into it and recreate a new pass.

    The best way in my opinion then is to hire a programmer to dig through the code. Find out what is used to encrypt the password and then encrypt a new password for you.

    Usually I would suggest adding a new account and then changing admin rights onto the new account but u can't do this in your situation I don't believe.

    Edit: As a note, this wouldn't require much, expect to pay for an hour max (it won't take an hour but people generally bill by the hour)

    Okay then without knowing the salt and generating a new set of rainbow tables it's not possible.
