Having problems installing EM? Let's fix that
Forum rules
DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

Here are some steps to remove the EM password (Thanks to Nightrider):


phpMyAdmin - Manually Changing the EM Password

The following is how you manually modify your EM password using phpMyAdmin. You can get into your database through your CPanel by clicking on phpMyAdmin. Follow the following instructions:

I'm sure that every host is different. I will tell you how I run my queries manually and hopefully it will be close to what you have available to you. The following may or may not be similar to what you have...

Log into your domain Control Panel and find the database icons. You should be able to find the phpMyAdmin icon. Click on it...

Image

Hopefully that will log you into your phpAdmin panel. You may need to provide a username and password...

In the phpMyAdmin panel, click on the Databases hyperlink...

Image

Hopefully that should take you where you can select your database. You may only have one. Select your database hyperlink...

Image

That should open up the display of all the tables in your database. Ignore them. Somewhere on the page, you should see something similar to this:

Image

Click on the phpbb_config table in the Left column navigation bar:

Image

Then on the top left of the right window, click on the Browse button:

Image

Then to display all the records, change the row settings to 500 starting with record 0, then press the Show button:

Image

Scroll down to the EM Password field, then click on the little pencil icon next to the record to edit it:

Image

Enter the following into the config_value Value editbox:

Code: Select all

Then press the Go button. You should now be able to log into EM without entering a password. Once you get into EM again, you can add another password in EM Settings if you prefer to have one.

Sorry for not replying.
This takes out your password.
Now go into the EM ACP and set a new password.

Poomie's been doing an awesome job helping people here. I wish there were more like him willing to lend a hand whenever someone needs assistance. If enough people volunteered to return and offer advice here, no one would ever have to wait long for assistance. Since my health hasn't been so good lately, it is good that people like Poomie are stepping up to the plate. Otherwise, many problems could go unresolved for a long, long time if they have to rely on me to be able to help...

Passwords are stored encrypted in the database. This is the equivalent of a blank password in EM. So if you use the encrypted password above, you can enter EM without entering anything in the password field during the EM login...

I know this thread is a couple of months old, but I just wish to express my thanks for the tips. My ACP/EM is now back in business! Thanks Poomerio!

Seanie.
