How to reset my SMF administrative password?

If you forgot your password you can reset it by following these steps:

Go to the SMF script > Click on login > Click on Forgot your password? > Type your ‘Username/Email:’ from the registration > Click on Send

You will receive an e-mail with a link which will force the new password to be typed.

If you’ve misspelled the email address when registering or do not remember it, there is another way to force new password change:

Go to your Site Tools > Site > MySQL > phpMyAdmin.

On the top left box select the database of your SMF. Then click on edit for the ‘smf_members‘ table > Find the administrator user and click the pencil button to edit it > On the field ‘passwd‘ where something like this will stand ‘e6053eb8d35e02ae40beeeacef203c1a’ change it with the one below. Then click on ‘OK‘.


Now your password is changed to sg123 and you can use it to log in. Then change your password to a new one.
