Hello,

I´m using an Advanced Guestbook 2.4.2. Since some days I´m not able to login.

I tried to change the password with the forget_pass.php file, but it doesn´t work and I got an error

Do you get that error all the time or only when you try to reset the password?

There are other ways to change the password such as using phpMyAdmin.

Thanks for the link. I read the posts and tried two ways.


First I tried

[Method 1]
Select the Guestbook database.
Select book_auth.
Now choose Browse.
You now see the admin username and password.
Select edit.
Now paste Code:

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?

773359240eb9a1d9




in the password field and click “GO”.

This will reset your account to:

Your admin name and the password will be: 123


but the password 123 did not work. I also tried to change username and password by the "second method" but both times I got the same error - invalid user /password.

Second I tried to use your reset_beta file and I got this error

Admin Reset

There was a problem changing the username and password
Table 'db34073x312207.book_auth' doesn't exist


I think it doesn´t work because the "book_auth" inside my phpMyAdmin is called "agb242_auth". Can you please give me some help again?

Thank you Andreas

Carbonize - thank you so much for your helping and your great reset.php file!!!

Inside your script I changed "book" to "agb242" and your script worked perfect.

Thank you Andreas

Is it only the auth table that has a different name?

Hmm the reset script that comes with AG uses the name of the table as provided in the config file which is also where the script gets it from.
