Here is a utility script to allow you to reset an Admin's password without using phpMyAdmin.
Code:
<?

/***********************************************************/
/* Just set $adminNameToReset to the admin name to reset   */
/* and save this file.  Call it anything you want, like    */
/* ResetPassword.php.  Then ftp it to the same folder where*/
/* mainfile.php is stored.  Then point your browser to the */
/* file. The password for that admin will be changed to    */
/* Password (note the capital P), by default. Then,        */
/* immediately log in and change your password!!! You      */
/* should then delete or rename this file!!                */
/* You can also change the password to something other than*/
/* Password by changing $newAdminPassword                  */
/***********************************************************/
/* Author: Gaylen Fraley  (Raven) 10/31/2003               */
/***********************************************************/
$adminNameToReset = '???';
$newAdminPassword = 'Password';

/***********************************************************/
/* You do not need to change anything below this line.     */
/***********************************************************/
include("mainfile.php");
$sql = "Select aid from ".$user_prefix."_authors where aid='$adminNameToReset'";
$result = sql_query($sql,$dbi);
if (!sql_num_rows($result)) {
   $mysqlError = mysql_error();
   if (empty($mysqlError)) $mysqlError = "<b>$adminNameToReset</b> appears to be an invalid user name.<br /><br />No updates have been made.";
   else $mysqlError = 'Unable to execute query.<br /><br />MySQL said <b>'.$mysqlError.'</b>.';
   die($mysqlError);
}
$sql = "Update ".$user_prefix."_authors set pwd='".md5($newAdminPassword)."' where aid='$adminNameToReset'";
$result = sql_query($sql,$dbi);
echo "Update successful!<br /><br />Your password has been changed to <b>$newAdminPassword</b>.<br /><br />Log in and immediately change it to protect your site!<br /><br />Also, be sure to remove this file or rename it!";
?>

I changed the admin password by hand but it didn't work. Excellent script you wrote, gonna come in handy, but - I still get the 'Begone' message.

Now, why is that?

When you change the password by hand, using phpMyAdmin for instance, you have to also select the MD5 option from the drop down box beside the password before you save it.

You are probably receiving that Begone message because the username is not matching a valid author name in the nuke_authors table. Usernames can only contain a-zA-Z0-9_- .

That must be it, I used brackets as the community members wear tags. Cheers Smile

That can easily be modified if you need to. In auth.php and modules/Your_Account/index.php the changes involve just 1 line. In auth.php modify this line
Code:
if (ereg("[^a-zA-Z0-9_-]",trim($aid)))
to
Code:
if (ereg("[^a-zA-Z0-9_-\[\]]",trim($aid)))


Then in modules/Your_Account/index.php modify this line
Code:
if ((!$username) || ($username=="") || (ereg("[^a-zA-Z0-9_-]",$username)))
to
Code:
if ((!$username) || ($username=="") || (ereg("[^a-zA-Z0-9_-\[\]]",$username)))


If you come across any other name checks, just modify them the same way.

There is no redirection. You save the file and load/ftp that file up and then point your browser to it. Follow the prompts.
