    Need to retrieve password to access my back office

    TWIMC

    I forgot my password to my Mambo Website which is an open source content management system. How do I retrieve my password and/or have it sent to my email that is located on the same website?? I have tried to contact Mambo but have had little to no response. Thank you in advance.

    Hi Alex

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    This appears to be quite a application specific question but I did a quick search and found this

    http://mamboteam.de/component/option,com_s.../page,loginout/

    There appears to be a password reminder utility at the bottom of the page.

    You can't retrieve your password, but you can set a new one by following a link sent to you by email. You also have the option of setting a new password by answering your secret question.

    Hope that Helps
    Jerry

    In the Mysql database / users change the password to 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99 this is the md5 equivalent to password, login with this and then change it via the users tab in the admin section. If you are interested in CMS systems for your website, Joomla is a much better option to Mambo, it is more secure and the support is legendary.

    Error 2 is generally a database connection problem. use whatever mysql package your server provider supplies and check that the username and password used to connect to the database are the same as the ones listed in configuration.php in the root of your site. I would suggest that you read the FAQ's at either Mambo or Joomla forums for detailed info about this error.
