How can I manually reset a password in the database using phpmyadmin?
  • How can I manually reset a password in the database using phpmyadmin?

    I am not receiving the password reset emails (separate issue) but I would like to know how to manually reset the passord. In the table that contains the user logins there is a password field, and I would like to know what algo is used to hash the password to get that string?

    Thanks in advance, Andrew

    Make sure your main account login's email address is verified at your SES console otherwise the 'forgot password' email will fail to send. If you've already done that and the email is still not in your inbox, check your spam folder.

    If the email is not in the spam folder, try the following to reset your password to 12345678:

    1. Login to Sendy's database via phpmyadmin
    2. Select the 'login' table
    3. Paste the following hash in the 'password' column of the first record overwriting the existing one

    Your password will be changed to 12345678.

    Needless to say, change your password immediately after logging in to Sendy.

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Ben
