As per the title - the original created login for testing works fine, but if I try to change the admin user's password and user name - or even just the password - I get the message: "No match for Username and/or Password." If I add a completely new admin user I just get the same message.
Clearing cookies/history makes no difference. How on earth can I get this to work?

No OC version posted.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased counters are caused by posted redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I have no idea what your reply means!
EDIT: the person that this comment was directed to has deleted all his comments throughout the thread - helpful.

Try adding a new md5 password to the oc_user table.

I would not suggest following this suggestion. MD5 algorithm is no longer a safe method for production servers.

Well, I don't understand any of the replies so far. Can you explain?

Google is your best friend for that. You don't need the forum to understand what MD5 does. The internet is bigger than the Opencart forum.

Using Opencart 3.
So first thing on Google tells me that "Although MD5 was initially designed to be used as a cryptographic hash function, it has been found to suffer from extensive vulnerabilities".
So can anyone suggest a workable solution to my problem? Anyone else having/had this issue? Is the solution just a new install? Anyone?

Anyone? Surely changing a password/adding a user should be a simple process.

Really? If it's so simple, why won't you use the Forum search since my replies can't be understood according to your statement then? !

Why people feel the need to be impatient and rude on the internet where they probably wouldn't in real life amazes me - I hope you don't teach for a living. This is a forum where one can ask for 'help' - I am asking for help having searched high and low for a solution. If you can't help or just want to belittle or be rude, please stop replying, what's the point?
Anyone else?

While this is the case, I don't see anywhere in your prior reply where this statement was the case as pointed from my last reply.

Will you please stop trolling this post - I am simply trying to get a solution to an Opencart issue I am experiencing and would appreciate useful responses.

This has been solved - and for anyone else having the same issue here's how I solved it:
in the database find 'user' and edit required user to reset password to 'password' with - 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99 added in the password field.
This allowed me to log in. Then changing the temp password in Opencart admin caused the same not recognised error when logging in - removing certain characters from the password enabled the login to work - so the following characters in the password caused the password to fail - using the '@' symbol and/or using the '&' symbol. Hope this may help others.
