    Reset Joomla Admin Password?

    If you are a Joomla user and forgot your Administrator password then don?t think of re-installation. There is an easy way to change your Administrator Password.
    To get your password recovered you will need following things.

    Access to PhpAdmin

    If you are Cpanel user you will find the link to PhpAdmin in your Cpanel itself otherwise you have to get the way to run SQL Query for Joomla?s Database.
    Below is the query which you have to Execute while changing respective words.

    UPDATE `jos_users` SET `password` = MD5( ?new_password? ) WHERE `jos_users`.`username` = ?admin? ;

    Please replace ?new_password? with the password you would like to have.
    Please replace ?admin? with your Admin Username.
    If you do follow all the instructions you will be able to log In to your Joomla Installation.

    PS: This method will work in both Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.0 versions.

    I Hope This Information Helpful For You All
