    Hi Everyone

    I would like to know if there is any way to retrieve the Network admin password or reset it either through front end or db ... I am unable to login as network admin and dont know what the password was as the installation was done by someone else... Any help is appreciated

    Regards

  2. Same as with normal single site WordPress http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    Have tried that but its of no use... it resets only the password on admin and not network admin

  4. Do you know WHO the network admin is? Because 'Through phpMyAdmin' can work for any ID.

    There are only 2 users showing in the _users table I have tried to login with each one but they are not network admin and the dashboard doesnt have any new fields for which should be for network admin

  6. How are you determining they're not the network admin?

    I dont see any new options to Add new sites and to manage the old one's

  8. Go into the database and look at the table wp_sitemeta

    For site_admins you should see something like a:1:{i:0;s:7:"Ipstenu";}

    Where the s:7 is the length of the user name (in my case, Ipstenu).

    What's yours?

    in site_admins is see it as admin and s:5 I tried changing it to another name after doing that I cannot see Network Admin link at the top so i changed it back to admin now I can see the network Admin links but when i try to login it just keeps on redirecting to wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.domain.com%2Fwp-admin%2Fnetwork%2F&reauth=1 and shown only the login screen... any ideas why the admin password wont let me go in as super user or network admin... how do i get this password?

    Thanks Ipstenu

    I figured out the issue of redirect and solved it by looking at another thread in the forum now everything is working fine

    Regards

  11. Which thread? :) For the next guy who comes along.
