Hi,

Could someone please advise me where i need to go to change the password to my website please?. the password i want to change is the www.xxxxxxxxxxx.com/admin one, i have looked in the config.php file but this only contains the username and password for MySQL database.

Any advice is most appreciated. Cheers.
Kind Regards,

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Is your site based upon some sort of CMS (Content Management System) such as PHPNuke? If so, the password is stored in the database. You would need to change it there. There are ways you could alter it without accessing the DB directly, but that would require knowing the table structure which will vary from one CMS to another.
The quality of the responses received is directly proportional to the quality of the question asked.

I do not always test the code I provide, so there may be some syntax errors. In 99% of all cases I found the solution to your problem here: http://www.php.net

Hi Guys,

Cheers for the replys. No i have changed my Cpanel password. This is a site custom built content management system and the site is controlled through the /admin/ section. there is a MySQL database, but dont know anything about the database or anything, so i got problems. LOL. there is no HTPSSD so i guess its controlled somewhere else, but where, is anyones guess.

Cheers for any advice provided.
Kind Regards,

there is no way we could possibly know how to change the password of this custom cms. we don't have it in front of us. i would assume that, like all good cms's, there would be a change password linkie somewhere in the menu. maybe under account settings or something.

If there is no way of changing the admin password then you'll have to find out if there is a password for the database that stores if, if that is how it is done.

Like Purple said... if its a custom built script there is no way we'll be able to help you.
