phpMyAdmin Password Reset

Post by Eelucid8 » Tue May 24, 2016 9:51 pm

Hi there!
Network Solutions just took my 2.5.9 site offline saying that it was a security risk so I have to upgrade to a newer version. I kickstarted a backup of the site on my local machine but when I try to access the back end my username/password isn't working. I went into _users in phpMyAdmin and changed the password in case that was the issue, but no matter what combination I put it, nothing is letting me into the back end.

Does anybody have any idea why a password reset in phpMyAdmin isn't working? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
-Bill

Check in "yourprefix_extensions" "plg_user_joomla" and "plg_authentication_joomla" must be "1" in row "enabled"

Thanks for the quick reply! I checked and both _user_joomla and _auth_joomla have "1" in row "enabled". Any other ideas? Thanks again.

The error is:
Username and password do not match or you do not have an account yet.
I tried to refresh the browser and even restarted it to no avail. Thanks!
