OsCommerce Admin Login Problems

If you cannot log into your OsCommerce admin area try the following:

1. Open your OsCommerce database through PhpMyAdmin. If you are not sure which it is check the file includes/configure.php and look for a constant called 'DB_DATABASE'.

2. Run the following two queries:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS administrators (
  id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  user_name varchar(32) NOT NULL,
  user_password varchar(40) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (id)
) ;

INSERT INTO administrators (iduser_nameuser_password) VALUES
(1, 'adm', '2272bd2219e0bbc353e33f1e774c9d1e:11');

3. The above will create a new administrator with login 'adm' and password 'pass11'.

In some cases the above steps might not help you resolve the problem and it is recommended to seek professional assistance.
