This has been covered many times and a search would have brought you to the answer. Here it is again.

To change your password:

If you have managed to forget your admin password and for some reason you cannot get the "Reset Password" function to work please follow this process:

1. Access your database using a tool such as phpMyAdmin and browser the table CubeCart_admin_users. It should contain the list of administrator accounts to access the admin interface of your store.

2. We need to now create a file to show us what the md5 hash of the password you require should be.

Using notepad make a file with content:


echo md5("password");


3. Replace password with your desired password.

4. Save this file as md5.php and upload it to your webserver.

5. Execute this in your browser and copy the output.

6. Edit the admin user with phpMyAdmin and paste this output into their password field.

If done successfully then you should now be able to access the admin interface of your store.

To change your email address you can either do it directly in your database or use the editconf.php. Copy the following text to notepad and save it as editconf.php. Upload to your server and execute it as in www.yoursite.com/editconf.php

panic set in before I could think... the other thing is I didn't manage to forget my password. I didn't change it nor did I forget it - I log in at least three times a day - it just won't let me in.
