You sure it's not necessary to select 'md5' in column function after pasting the password to ps_employee?

  I am not able to log in to my back office.  I know my password but did a forgot password anyway.  The temp password doesn't work either.  Can someone help?  Tried multiple computers also and deleted cookies.  Stuck.

 

Thanks!

The shop is running. If I try enter the backend. it looks like my password is accepted, only nothing happens. I just copied all files. Made a new database imported old. How can I see where the problem can be?

The issue has been resolved.  Cache needed to be cleared.

 

Hope that helps someone else in the future.

hi Vekia! Thanks you for your reply. I tried with Mozilla and it's working. It's a Chrome's problem... Probably because this morning I had a Flash Player update...

 

Thanks!

This works fine for a superuser and someone who has access to MySQLAdmin.  When user's use lost password the login screen does a 180 degree turn and that is it.  For what a read in the forum this is clearly a bug that has not been resolve yet.

Hi,

 

i'm also trying to get into my back office. I tried to request a password reset twice now and I have not received any reply email as yet. I changed my web hosting to a new account.

Same problem here, using v1.6.0.14.

Any workaround, i.e. PHpMyAdmin to try to recover password ?

Thanks  :)

Appreciate help with this issue I am on a 1.4 version of Prestashop. I have downloaded it to Localhost to do an update and also duplicate the site once its upto date.

 

1. It has the loop where it tries to go to the online server, I have changed the URL in phpmyAdmin.

2. I cannot access the URL change inside the backend due to it not recognising my password.

3. I can reach the backend by .com/superuser

4. But if I do just the .com it goes online to the main site.

5. Have gone through the process of finding the cookie etc. but it hasn't worked spent 5 hours on this so far. Been through the above steps.

6. Requested new email also doesn't send.

 

Any ideas??

@mattwilkie,

 

Your request for help does not make any sense. I does not understand what you try. Resetting a password is just a matters of accessing the db and fixing the email if you've enter some that does not exists anymore and requesting a new pass. Will be sent by mail then.

 

If for some weird reason you plateform does not send mail. You can force a pass directly in the bdd md5(COOKEY_KEY+pass).

If you expect to decipher the cookie or forge one, let me be clear the universe will end before you'll be close to a solution.

 

Follow this topic from post #1 the procedure will allow you to recover acces to your shop in no time.

The database didn't send out its password for some reason it wasn't going anywhere. I solved it by taking it from Localhost and shoving it onto a live server and it worked.

I found this the easiest way to reset the password: go to pss_employee, select MD5, in the password field put the cookie key and the new password

Well, I've updated PS first and afterwards I could not login anymore... But that problem is solved. Up to the next!
