Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look
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!

The only way to do that is to google for an md5 calculator and then use that to generate a pass.
Then go into the database in the config table search for EM_password
And change the value there with the md5 hashed pass you got from the md5 calculator.

this is really quite simple. go here:
http://www.vnpower.org/web-tools/MD5-Encode.html

type in the password that you want to create, type it in again, click the button.
on the next page will be a long string of characters.

copy/paste that string into a text file and save it.

now, using phpmyadmin or whatever your host provides for database access,
( these instructions assume phpmyadmin)
go to your phpbb database, find the config table ( default name is phpbb_config , yours may have a different prefix)

click the browse tab at the top of the screen.
go to the second of third page of results,
find the EM_password field.
click on the edit/pencil icon
on the next page, replace the long string of characters in the value field with the string of characters you saved earlier.

click go,

close out phpmyadmin.
go back to your board, go to EM, enter your new password.

that's it.
