This tutorial is about Prestashop-Reset admin password.In this article, we will learn how to install a reset admin password in prestaShop.Often people forget their passwords and find it difficult to reset them. It is quite a simple process. So let’s move forward and have a look.
Please note that this method will be useful only when you have access to the database.
First of all check your ”config/settings.inc.php ” file for the _COOKIE_KEY_ value.
Run the following SQL and replace the <> variables with your information:
UPDATE employee SET passwd = md5(“<_COOKIE_KEY_ value>
”) WHERE email = “youremailaddress”;
Let’s have an example for more clarification.
UPDATE `ps_employee` SET `passwd` = MD5(‘<_COOKIE_>password’) WHERE `email` = ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’;
That’s it from this simple method. That’s it from this tutorial. I strongly believe there is always room for improvement. So I am open to any suggestion and feedback. Please feel free to leave what you are thinking in the comments section below. Cheers.
