Forgot easymod password

Post by Submin » Sun Nov 27, 2005 6:27 pm

Hi!
I'm using easymod, but i've forgotten the password which the PhpBB ACP easymod-pages require.
Is there any way i can change the password? Is it stored in the sql-db or in a flatfile?

I didn't see it in the readme.doc file you mentioned. All it says is try another password!

Any other ideas/suggestions?

  1. ReadMe
  2. It's been answered here multiple times by Nightrider.
  3. If you have problems with the pass not working at all, then it's not the same as "Forgot easymod password" what you might notice if you would strain yourself a bit...
  4. This is 4am :P.

Yes my dear, it has been answered several times but:
I didn't want to hassle around with phpMyAdmin so I found out a really easy way to reset te EasyMod password.
In the following description I refer on the version 0.3.0 which apparently seems to be the final version. If your version is adifferent one just replace the version numbers I wrote, accordingly.

1.) deinstall EasyMod ReadMe
2.) search in the easymod_install.php for the string 0.3.0 and change it to something else, let's say 0.3.0.x (the version number 0.3.0 is still stored in the database and the installation procedure doesn't allow to install the same version "twice")
3.) install EasyMod (with the modified easymod_install.php) again ReadMe
4.) enter to the MODs Center's History, click on details of the EasyMod 0.3.0 and delete it. (Leave alone EasyMod 0.3.0.x, it is your new EasyMod!!!)
5.) again, in the Mods Center, go to Settings and change the version number 0.3.0.x back to 0.3.0

Done.

For lesser experienced people (most of us are!) it is the easiest way to reset a forgotten EM password.

:idea: Time to forbid forbidders here...

what if you dont even have an easymod password, due to it being "deleted" when doing a backup :cry:

Reseting the EasyMOD password via phpMyAdmin:

Go into the MySQL database.

Find the table phpbb_config
Then find the entry "EM_password"

It will contain an encrypted version of the password.
Edit it, and replace the encryption with:

Code: Select all

d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e
This changes the password to a blank password (just press enter).
Then you can just change the password to something that you will remember, in the EasyMOD Settings in the ACP.

See if that works for you.
