How to recover Joomla admin password?

How do I recover my Joomla admin password?

this work with Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5

If you know the email address that was used, the simplest thing is to do is to use the “lost password” Front-end function if you have made it available.

If not, you will need access to the MySQL database.

Now one will hack Joomla website just by reading this post.

You have two choices, either add a new super administrator or change the password stored in the data base. To do this you need to go to phpMyAdmin (or use a similar tool) and manually edit the database. Before doing this back up our complete database.

Run this to create a new user known as admin2.

INSERT INTO `jos_users` VALUES
    (62, 'Administrator2', 'admin2', '
 your-email@email.com This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 ', '21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3',
    'Super Administrator', 0, 1, 25, '2005-09-28 00:00:00', '2005-09-28 00:00:00', '', '');
INSERT INTO `jos_core_acl_aro` VALUES (10,'users','62',0,'Administrator2',0);
INSERT INTO `jos_core_acl_groups_aro_map` VALUES (25,'',10);

The password will be admin. Immediately log in and change this password.

Or

You can change the password in the table for your admin user (assuming you never changed the user name; if you have just change the instructions below to .

The password is stored in the MySQL database jos_users table password field. (change this for your table prefix if different)

Open the table, find your admin username, and then select that row for editing.

The password must be hashed, you cannot simply enter text into this field.

Set the password to a known value

- password = "this is the MD5 hashed password"
------------------------------------------------------
- admin  = 21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3
- secret = 5ebe2294ecd0e0f08eab7690d2a6ee69
- OU812  = 7441de5382cf4fecbaa9a8c538e76783

Paste the hashed password into the field, save the change, and log-in using the new password. Immediately change your password to something more secure!

How Domain Expires?

Comments Off on How Domain Expires?

<h1>How Domain Expires?</h1>
<h1>How to renew Expired Domain Name?</h1>
Contrary to popular belief, domains do not expire when they say they do. If the owner of a domain does not renew by the expiration date of the domain, the domain goes into “expired” status. For 40 days, the domain is in a grace period where all services are shut off, but the domain owner may still renew the domain for a standard renewal fee. If a domain enters this period, it is a good first indicator that it may not be renewed, but since the owner can re-register without penalty, it can also just be a sign of laziness or procrastination.

After 40 days are up, the domain’s status changes to “redemption period”. During this phase, all WhoIs information begins disappearing, and more importantly, it now costs the owner an additional fee to re-activate and re-register the domain. The fee is currently around $100, depending on your registrar. When a domain enters its redemption period, it’s a good bet the owner has decided not to renew.

Finally, after the redemption period, the domain’s status will change to “locked” as it enters the deletion phase. The deletion phase is 5 days long, and on the last day between 11am and 2pm Pacific time, the name will officially drop from the ICANN database and will be available for registration by anybody.

The entire process ends exactly 75 days after the listed expiration date. For an even more detailed explanation, read the article <a href=”http://dnjournal.com/columns/cover080504.htm” target=”_blank”>Inside a Drop Catcher’s War Room</a>.
