    Default How to change ADMIN password for oscommerce

    To change your password for logging in as the administrator for OSCOMMERCE, simply ftp into the directory : /usr/local/webpassword

    you should see a file there called: wp001.dat

    edit that file with the new user name and password. This is an encrypted password, so you won't be able to "see" the old one, but you'll be able to generate a new one by going to another website that generates "htpasswd encryption" one I found on google did the trick for me, <>

    the file should be named the same - and should look like

    then FTP the new file back over, then you should be cmod to 777 (at least mine was this way before, so I assume it still needs to be the same)

    If you're using FireFTP (from Firefox) right click on the file and click on properties (CTRL-P)
