Dear Magento Team
I tried to reset the admin password in admin_user table via phpMyAdmin 5.6.16.
After unsuccessful attempts due to unable to pick SHA256 format from the phpMyAdmin gui,
how can i reset the password ?
I have limited with mySql knowledge.
You can use the new Magento CLI.
If you know exactly the username and email registered for your user, you can execute this command:
bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user="the_same_username" --admin-password="your_new_password" --admin-email="the_same_email" --admin-firstname="John" --admin-lastname="Doe"
Using the same username and email the password will be updated.
Hello, maybe you can use password managerhttp://www.passwordmanagers.net/resources/windows-7-administrator-password-reset-tool-40.html to reset your admin password and it works very well.What`s more it is a mutipipe device for almost device in recovery and password protection.It is free and you can have a try.
