How to reset my administrative password?

In order to reset PHPAuction administrator's password please follow these steps:

1. Log in Cpanel and go to PhpMyAdmin

2. Once in phpMyAdmin select the PHPAuction database from the drop-down menu at left. The page will refresh and the database's tables will be displayed on it. Open the SQL tab (look at the top navigation bar).

In the text field write the following SQL query:

UPDATE PHPAUCTION_adminusers SET password = MD5( 'new_password_here' ) WHEREPHPAUCTION_adminusers.username = "admin_username";

"new_password_here" - replace this with the new password you wish to use.
