Troubleshooting: Forgot password for backend login

Note

The following only works if your site administrator has enabled the password reset and if your backend account has a valid email address set.

  1. Click on Forgot your password?

    Go to the backend login page and select Forgot your password?.

    Click on "Forgot your password?"

    Click on Forgot your password?

  2. Enter your email address

    Use the exact email address you used during registration.

    Click on "Forgot your password?"

    Click on Forgot your password?

  3. Open the email

    Note that you will get the following page even if the email you entered was not found. This is due to the fact that the system will not disclose information about any registered email addresses.

    If you do not receive the email, check your spam folder and double-check the email address is correct.

    Click on "Forgot your password?"

    Click on Forgot your password?

  4. Enter the new password

    After you clicked on the password recovery link in the email you received you can enter a new password. Always use a secure password.
