unable to login to joomla site

unable to login to joomla site was created by corkyanderson
Doing maintenance on all my joomla sites today.

One site is now not letting me in. I did what is recommended in the joomla forum, by going into phpMyAdmin and finding the user -> edit -> and plugging in the code to change the password to 'secret' hit 'Go'. then go to my login page and still cannot get in.

Do you know other ways to break in to my own joomla site?

thank you

Hi corkyanderson,

If you aren't able to login in your backend because you don't remember your password, try these suggestions: www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/how-to-re...ername-and-password/

If you're using Joomla 3, did you tried saving this as new encrypted password?

My server guy wants to know if you have a public key he can install on the server to let you in – and can you fix it from command line.
