Forgotten my phpList admin password [solution]

Postby Dragonrider » 1:26pm, Thu 13 Jun, 2013

Okay, so you've forgotten your phpList admin password, how can you recover it?

Two ways, use your webspace Control Panel (cPanel, Plesk etc), select phpMyAdmin, find and select your phplist database and look in the (usually) first table, phplist_admin and there is your loginname and password.

What if you don't have access to phpMyAdmin, OR you are not at all confident in using phpMyAdmin?

Then use the attached file, download it, change the four values mentioned to suit your database, upload to your phpList folder and run.

Code: Select all
Lines 6-8 and 14

# Change these  three values to match your database

$query="SELECT * FROM phplist_admin";

This will display your admin details.

Remove after use!!
