New admin account

I have somehow lost my admin priveleges

I was overseas and was on a slow line that probably caused the problem

Now I cannot login as admin

Have tried this:

For reseting your password to "admin" you have to do following:

1) go to your data directory
2) find there the file album_user.php and open it
3) find your user record in array where 'name' => 'Your username'
4) you'll see there also the password with encrypted password
5) change that line to 'password' => '21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3',
6) save the file and try to login with your username and password: admin
7) chmod that file to 666, so phpAlbum can write it.

Hope this help you!

Can I recreate admin?

I'm not sure what you are

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you did all that steps, then you have now admin as the password, but the user is the one where you did put hash code.

###################

The above steps do work.

I was modifying the wrong data directory.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

My question to create a super user go to data directory and modify
user entry of album_user.php to contain:

array (
'guest' => '1',
'superuser' => '1',
'Friends' => '1',
'Family' => '1',

Have now created 2 admin account to safe guard a loss of master

Is this OK 2 admin accounts

It is ok to have more admin

It is ok to have more admin accounts. You can even create them without changing data files. You can easily assign users to superuser group, this users get administrator rights ...

I will probably must build

I will probably must build in some "Lost password" feature, where one can put his email adress and new generated password will be sent per email ...

lost password

Is there any way to reset the admin password? I can't remember what I used and can't figure out how to set up another user as a superuser.

never mind, I found another thread and deleted the file and then reuploaded with the generic password and got it to work.

My admin user and password not working

When I use to open user and password with admin name then it works but the problem is that at left panel the options prompt
Menu:
My Account
Logout
<<< Album

so it means my admin accunt auto deleted

Plz help me I want to scan the gallery
