How To Reset Joomla Password

Information database editing.

  1. Get a randomly generated 32 character string such as:
      ("138gbd53j984jne63v573jn9dk47sm29")
  2. Add that random string to the new password.
      ("password138gbd53j984jne63v573jn9dk47sm29")
  3. Perform an MD5 hash of the combined string.
       ("2be69387c187cf45059a83f577c7eb06")
  4. Add this string into the _users table in the joomla db followed by a : and the 32 character string.
       ("2be69387c187cf45059a83f577c7eb06:138gbd53j984jne63v573jn9dk47sm29")

This sets the password as „password“.
