Hey, so this has happened before, I have phpmyadmin on my local machine and the password has stopped working mysteriously. Does anyone have knowledge of what might be going on here?
I looked at other similar topics and the codex page, but I still can't get it to work.
I tried to reset my password directly with PHP myAdmin. Here is where the interesting thing happens.
I open the database, go to users, and locate the user_pass column. The password I am using is sesame. So, I type in sesame, choose MD5, and click 'Go'. It saves the hash of the password which is c8dae1c50e092f3d877192fc555b1dcf
Ok. Looks like it got changed. I then try to log in, I go to the log in page and type in my user name, and for the password, I type sesame. The password just disappears.
Now, If I go back to phpmyadmin and look at the field I just changed, the password has changed from the above hash to $P$BQDZRRqq3ZX54HEhDraxz4T020UqH5
which isn't what it was before. Looks like something is overwriting my password.
Can anyone help?
