Password wont change for directories


I am trying to figure out why when I try and change the password in the galleries section (the root password) and click save on the bottom, it reloads the page with the same old password. I have tried multiple times from multiple browsers, same problem.

Is there any easy way for me to fix this issue? Deleting login and setup files to reconfigure? I cannot re-upload the gallery

If i were to delete files in the data folder would that make me reconfigure the album? (that would be fine as long as it would accomplish my goal).

I am kind of new to this album and the use of it, could you let me know which file i should be checking? I deleted the main_setup.dat file and reconfigured from scratch, still have no luck with changing the password.

Any help is appreciated, thank you
