if you don't have ftp-access to the files there's nothing you can do except asking the person for help who set it up for you.

Um, I think it would be scary if a script writer can control your site like that... :o

Is that an admin or user account?

this means you're not the full admin of the site. This is not a bug, but only comes naturally: if there was a backdoor you could use to retrieve your email account, any other attacker could. If you had ftp access, we could come up with a little script that shows you your password temporarily. If you would have entered an email address into your profile, you could have retrieved your password using the "forgot password" link. This is not a "missing feature", but simply improper setup or reluctance of your firend to give you full admin powers imo.

what i meant was like...erm...

do you know proboards?
well, on the support forum and whatsuch- if you've got a problem there is a few main admin who have access to all the accounts. so if you loose your password or something they can reset it for you.

this would be a backdoor. As coppermine is open source, every script-kiddy could take a look at the backdoor's source code and use it to gain admin access. It's by design that such a feature simply can not work. Believe us.
