🠈 Back 🠉 FAQS TIPS & TRICKS


If you have lost the login credentials to access admin:

  • In your database, select the administrators and delete the existing administrator.
  • Edit the file on your server, youradmin/.htpasswd_oscommerce - delete all content and save the file.
  • Edit the file on your server, youradmin/.htaccess - delete the following lines:
##### OSCOMMERCE ADMIN PROTECTION - BEGIN #####
AuthType Basic
AuthName "osCommerce Online Merchant Administration Tool"
AuthUserFile /web/htdocs/YOUR PATH TO ADMIN DIRECTORY/.htpasswd_oscommerce
Require valid-user
##### OSCOMMERCE ADMIN PROTECTION - END #####
  • Then access yoursite/youradmin
  • You will see that no admin exists and that you should enter a username and password to create one.
  • Do this, make a record of username and password and access again
  • Use the username and password you just entered
  • After login, go to Configuration → Administrators and activate additional .htaccess protection.
