339: How to reset my OpenCart Admin Password
It can be hard to keep up with all the different passwords for your account. If you've forgot your admin password for OpenCart, you can reset the password in the database. You'll have to use phpMyAdmin in cPanel to change the password to the admin account. Since you'll be resetting the password to something easy like "password" it's very important to make sure once you are logged in to the OpenCart Admin Dashboard to change it to something more secure.
- Log into cPanel and click on phpMyAdmin
- Open the database that your OpenCart store uses
- Find the "user" table
- Edit the user with the username "admin" and change the password field to 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99. This string or hash changes the password to "password" (without the quotes)
- Click "Go"
- Now, attempt to log into the OpenCart Dashboard with your new password
Be sure to change the password as soon as you log into the dashboard, since the password is insecure.
