We are running version
Getting error no match for username or password

We had two people using the same login from different locations and was generating the invalid syntax session error for a little while - so from within the admin section (using the owner privileges or whatever) I added a new user from within the admin section.

I then logged out from the admin and logged in with the new username which has lower access rights. Logs in fine, can't see all the screens my other access has so win win.

I then log in with my old username and it is giving me the "no match for username or password error" but it was working 30 mins prior, has been working for months.

So when I created the new user in the opencart admin - it has somehow messed with my user table.

Please let me know what I should check.

I have just checked the user table in phpmyadmin and noticed that the new user I created has a matching password string to the user I previously used.

I have now just logged in using my old username (lets call it user 1) - but with the username I gave user 2, and it works..

So it seems that when I created the new user,it overwrote the password on my account also - that is strange isn't it?

How should I change the password now?

Use ocreset.php, there is no mail, admin pass is reset on the spot. Download at but first read instructions at Be certain to delete it afterward.

You can concurrently keep tabs on the database and see the change made.
