 ??? :(

I've made a blunder by forgetting my password + the email I used when setting up coppermine. Now I cannot login! Any possibility of obtaining a way in through the backend, without a password and email address?

Thank you.

Cape Town, South Africa

Just use all your email addresses you have. One will at some point give you the ability to either change or get your password.
I mean how many email addresses can you possibly have?

Don't be lazy now. ;D ;) :D

I think that if first create a new user and then go into a program like phpMyAdmin where you can admin the contents of each table.

inside there if you go to:  _users
and browse the table, you will find the new username you made... modify the user_group to 1 so it grants that user admin properties

and then.  try login into coppermine with that user...
