I have seen the reset option but was hoping that I could recover it. As I obviously can't I searched as you suggested and found someone who said it can't be done and was talking about a reset infusion????
There is a password reset page.
I select myself by name or Super Admin
I enter a reason
.....but it won't reset because it wants the Admin password????
Hello everyone. I've followed the instructions in this thread, and others, closely. I have attempted both the PHP way to reset the admin password (the little utility script), as well as updating my database directly.
I have managed to clear the admin password and when I return to my profile I am given the option to enter a new one. I do this (being very careful to enter it without errors), and upon submitting it am immediately returned to the profile with the header stating that I need to enter my admin password! However, at this point it seems to have taken since three input boxes appear (Current Admin password, new admin password, re-enter new admin password).
Initially I just ignored this and went to try it out (add a new panel), but every time I do I'm told it's the wrong admin password! (In case you're wondering, yes, I do know there are two different password, and yes, I'm entering them correctly).
As a test, I cleared the password again, re-entered it in the profile, and then immediately after submitting it (with the same "Admin password not set!" error at the top), attempted to update it again in the profile. Even then the brand spanking new password is not being accepted, and I'm 100% certain I'm entering everything correctly (both my login and admin).
I also attempted to copy my login password into the admin password field in the db (I understand it's not recommended -- I'm just getting desperate), and that one is also not being accepted.
Additionally, I've also tried an Infusion (sorry, can't remember the link now), that claims to reset the admin password but it seems to do absolutely nothing.
I'm completely at my wit's end here. Any advice? Any other info I can provide?
P.S. I just checked my PHP error log and it's empty. No errors being reported.
None of the above works for me. I tried everything, does anyone have other advices they can give.?
JoiNNN, I have send you a private message with access to view this for your self and see if you can have a go for us as I am a little stuck on this one.
Many thanks in advance

I have passed everything down to our developers and everything works! Thanks again for your help and yeah Domi's method does work. I guess I'm getting a little rusty as I handle mainly the server's function and ability to perform.
