How to Reset Your Lost Joomla Password

You must have access to your database. If you don't, pass these instructions on to someone that does. It's also a good idea to backup your database before making changes, just in case something goes awry.

1. Log in to your Joomla database (via phpMyAdmin for example)
2. Click to edit the _users database (will be preceded by your account name, for example: example_users)
3. Edit the entry for where usertype = "Super Administrator" (should be the first record)
4. Query: UPDATE example_users SET password=MD5('new password') WHERE usertype = "Super Administrator";

Joomla 1.5, 1.0 and earlier passwords:

Follow steps 1-3
Query: UPDATE `jos_users` SET `password` = MD5( 'new password' ) WHERE `jos_users`.`username` = "admin";
