  • Lost username and password!

    How can I log on to admin?

    I haven't administered my board for ages and now I can't find the logon info.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    In the zip you downloaded from the members area there is a php file in the extra directory called "getadmin.php".

    Upload it and run it from admin directory.

    Use this to gain access again.

      I've uploaded getadmin.php, entered a new username and then it takes me to a login page with the following message:

      "You are either not a valid administrator or have not logged in. Please log in now:"

      If I enter my new username, what do I put for a password?

      Thanks,

      Jon

        Sorry my instructions weren't that clear.

        Register on your board again as another user.

        Then run getadmin.php and enter the username you just registered under.

        This should give u admin capabilities from that username.

            Now that I've logged in, I can't find the MySQL password that I used. That is the reason why I wanted to get into admin of vBulletin - because I lost the MySQL password.

            Is it stored there somewhere?

              It is stored in the config.php file.

                Thanks! Do I run that file to see the password or do I ftp and manually view the php file and hunt through the code?

                  Download the file through ftp and view it.

                        How did you set up the vBulletin in the first place if you dont remember where you put in the mysql info?

                          This sucks.

                          I keep using my time helping unlicenced users.

                          There has got to be a solution!
