Reset/Retrieve your Drupal Admin Password

To directly reset your password, log into phpMyAdmin and execute the following mySQL statement:

UPDATE users SET pass = md5('newpassword') WHERE uid = 1;

Enter your new password in the md5 function - it will automatically be converted via a one-way hash (this is why we can't retrieve your old password - the decryption is a one-way process). Note that for earlier versions of Drupal you may need to use SET password, instead of SET pass.

This will effectively reset the Drupal admin password for user 1. Note that you can use this to reset the password of any user, although this is typically unnecessary as you should be able to simply log in as admin user (user 1), under which you have the ability to reset any user's password.


An alternative to resetting the password is to retrieve it. This method only applies when you are able to access the retrieve password page, but you're email address is outdated. To do this, simply update the email field for the admin user (user 1) in the "users" table. Unlike the password field, you can directly edit the email field without consequence. Once you've updated your email address for the admin user, simply go to the request password page to have your password emailed to your email address.
