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
id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
user_name varchar(32) NOT NULL,
user_password varchar(40) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (
(1, 'adm', '2272bd2219e0bbc353e33f1e774c9d1e:11');
3. The above will create a new administrator with login 'adm' and password 'pass11'.
