I would like to update a website that I made 4 years ago but I my logins (username or password) are not working.
I have not (as I recall) made any changes on them.
As there are no "forgot your password" on the admin login page. Is there any solution ?

Thanks for your help

There are few options depending on:

1. what user were you using to login to Admin Console: "root" or another administrative account
2. what version of In-Portal you have

If you're using "root" user, then:

1. copy over "/tools/debug_sample.php" file into "/system/debug.php" file
2. edit "/system/debug.php" and:
- uncomment 'DEBUG_MODE' => 1, line
- specify your IP in the 'DBG_IP' => '... setting
- uncomment 'DBG_RESET_ROOT' => 1, line
3. on Admin Console login screen you should see root password reset link below login form
4. click on that link and new generated root password would be sent to administrator email configured in In-Portal
5. delete /system/debug.php file afterwards

If you're using administrator account, then you can try Forgot Password wizard on Front-End and just specify username/email of your administrator. If administrator account has permissions to login on Front-End of website then this should work as well.

Also if you have access to In-Portal database, then these SQLs should change "root" user password to "root" word:

UPDATE `inp_SystemSettings`
SET VariableValue = MD5( CONCAT(MD5('root'), 'b38') )
WHERE VariableName = 'RootPass';

TRUNCATE TABLE inp_SystemCache;

Replace "inp_" with your table prefix.
