How to reset a forgotten Joomla password

 

Using any MySQL admin tool, (PHPMyAdmin), run the following query, entering your own choice of password:

 

UPDATE jos_users SET password = MD5("new-password") WHERE jos_users.username = "admin";

 

If you’re using a different username to admin, change as appropriate.
If this doesn’t work, try changing jos_users to mos_users.
