I m facing similar password problems . In the above occasions, I tried to develop a bi-lingual websites and later found that my password is not working. Though it did n't say incorrect password, but the login pass failed to move but refreshed itself asking for login/password.
I checked in the phymyadmin and founf that the admin encrypted password is long i.e. 64 bit 8ec87e8ecbb37e8b6bb395da4985a719:aWa8Z3ZKMvVtvBQ3yg1eX8vIJ7Buylrz.
Is it in md5 format > ? I does not look like it.

How to encode a password for it? FYI, I tried with online md5 cryptography i.e. http://pajhome.org.uk/crypt/md5/ to generate password but it failed to work.
Pls suggest.

it's the md5 result of the standard password "admin".

Do you mean i should copy and paste this:

INSERT INTO `jos_users`
(`id`, `name`, `username`, `email`, `password`, `usertype`, `block`, `sendEmail`,
`gid`, `registerDate`, `lastvisitDate`)
VALUES (NULL, 'Administrator2', 'admin2', [email protected] ',
'd2064d358136996bd22421584a7cb33e:trd7TvKHx6dMeoMmBVxYmg0vuXEA4199',
'Super Administrator', 0, 1, 25, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', '0000-00-00 00:00:00');
INSERT INTO `jos_core_acl_aro` VALUES (NULL, 'users', LAST_INSERT_ID(), 0, 'Administrator', 0);
INSERT INTO `jos_core_acl_groups_aro_map` VALUES (25, '', LAST_INSERT_ID());

I followed instructions from

http://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_recov ... assword%3F

and still can't login. The password seems to work - the message I get says "You do not have access to the administrator section of this site."

Any ideas?
Thanks, Mark

did you follow the instructions for "Change the Password in the Database" or for "Add a New Super Administrator User"?
I'd recommend adding a new Super Admin and try again.

Please run this query to get password.

UPDATE jos_users SET password=MD5('your password') WHERE username = "username"

thx..

I am not sure why every one wants to put new password as "admin", its not secure, yes i understand that the password can be changed later when you login and go to user manager.


The more precise query will be:
UPDATE jos_users SET password=MD5('your new password') WHERE username = "admin"

You can also go to that table jos_users and edit the record, just put the new password, there is drop down select MD5 in the functions column.

Try to login again :)
