PHP Melody – Video Sharing script
Losing your PHP Melody admin password isn’t the end of the world. In this post we will help you overwrite your existing password in a matter of minutes.
Reasons why you might need this tutorial:
forgot the darn password
someone changed it and forgot to tell you
retrieving the password via the “Forgot your password” page fails
Before you begin make sure you have the login details for your cPanel, Plesk or whatever your hosting provider offers as a hosting management console.
Log into your cPanel/Plesk account
Find the phpMyAdmin link which will take you to your MySQL databases
Select your PHP Melody MySQL database
Select the “pm_users” table from all of PHP Melody’s tables
Click on the top left “Browse” tab to see the contents of the “pm_users” table
Go to the first listing (ID number 1), normally the “admin” account and click the edit button (the pencil)
Once on the edit page for the admin account, type in your new desired password in plain text
Make sure you select “md5” from the functions column (on the left of your password)
Hit the “Go” or “Save” button and try your new password by accessing your PHP Melody admin area.
