Super User locked out. Can I change password in database?

Post by Laurie Stevens » Fri Aug 16, 2019 12:39 pm

Hi all,

I have no idea how this happened but both Super Users on my site have been locked out of the backend of Joomla. Is there any way to change our passwords by accessing our database?

Please advise, ASAP. We have a stop-work situation and I'm afraid of a hack.

Thanks so much!

Laurie

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so. Twain
