Topic: [FAQ] I have forgotten my password

In The latest CuteNews versions there is a lost-password function included!
This won't work when your host doesn't allow you to send mails.
Then try the following

You can't retrieve your lost password but you can change it. To change your password, open users.db.php that is located in you CuteNews folder. Then find the line in users.db.php where is displayed your username after your username there should be a | and then a long string of letters and numbers, this is your crypted password. Now you should delete this password string and make a new password in md5 format, you can do this using this tool (or google for md5 encoder when this tool doesn't work), then replace with your new password and save.
