The password is stored in "cpg_users" table in database. You can access the database via phpMyAdmin or any other database tool provided by your webhost. Just browse that table and see what the current password is.

If you are using phpMyAdmin follow the steps given below.

  • Open phpMyAdmin
  • On the top left hand side there will be drop down box. Select the database in which you installed coppermine
  • Then a list of all the tables in that database will appear below that drop down box. Click on cpgPrefix_users table (Replace cpgPrefix_ with the prefix you have used)
  • Then on the right hand side the table structure will be shown. Click on "Browse" link in the top menu (right side)
  • All the records in that table will be shown. Generally the first record is the admin record. Get the password from "password" field of that record.
