  • Change Admin Password and Email

    Hi. I recently changed my admin password and now I do not have all my permissions. For example, I can not upload in the control panel. I noticed in the config.php it has my old password. But when I tried to change the config.php I got a database error. Plus, I still get emails to my old email address that I first set up.

    Could you tell me the correct way to change the admin password and email address so that everything switches. Thanks bunches.

    changing admin passwords do not need to change database password in config.php

    to change admin password lookup your admin username in vB admin find user fuction and enter new password in password field box and save

      Hi Eva! I did that originally. That's why my permissions are screwy. Somewhere it still is using my email address and I am assuming original password.
