Reset Admin Password – PrestaShop

Updated 26 March 2015

Recently, I forget my password of PrestaShop`s backend, I tried the “lost password” link but never received any email, as the email i registered is invalid

I try this solution as I have access to the database.

Check your ” config/ ” file for the _COOKIE_KEY_ value.

Run the following SQL and replace the <> variables with your information:

UPDATE employee SET passwd = md5(“<_COOKIE_KEY_ value><yourNewPassword>”) WHERE email = “youremailaddress”;

or for example:

Searching for an experienced
Prestashop Company ?
Find out More
UPDATE `ps_employee` SET `passwd` = MD5('<_COOKIE_>password') WHERE `email` = '[email protected]' ;
