Request of new password?!
« on: June 25, 2006, 10:32:24 pm »

so what is the point?
- you got your new password on your secound email !
- there is a diffrence between gallery and forum's  "forgot password" system
- also it work for me (please edit your post and remove your password or login with that and change your password)

The login Password and ID done exsist... it's a test! (I'm not a fool)

The e-mail I received is NOT correct... in my opinion and definitely NOT professional.

If I can't do anything about just say so... I'll appreciate a decent answer...

(EDIT: The reply buttons are back on...)

First, did you read the post above and notice that it said to
Disregard this post
? Next time start your own thread.

If you can login into your hosting account, you can reset the password for your Coppermine account in the mysql database but you MUST make a database backup before attempting this. Using phpMyAdmin, look under the user table and edit the user-name. Set the user_password function to MD5 and enter a new password. Like I said, you MUST make a backup before doing this.
Did you read the manual first???? Taking 2 minutes to backup your files can save you hours of wondering what you screwed up.
