Joomla Reset Admin Password

Just in case you have forgotten your Joomla admin panel password, it can be easily reset to any md5 encoded password through amendment in the database record. The table where the password is stored is located in _user, under password column. To encode your human readable password to md5 hash encryption, there are plenty site available throughout the virtual world and I am personally using Javascript MD5. Input the required password and click on MD5 button and copy the generated string then replace the value string "password" record in the database with the newly generated md5 hash string.

That's it and the password has been reset.
