How to Reset your Joomla Administrator Password

Sometimes you can’t log in to your Joomla Administrator Panel (your website’s backend). This can happen for several reasons. Maybe your website got hacked and the users and passwords have been changed; maybe someone else was in control of the passwords and you are no longer in contact with them; or maybe you just forgot your password.

Whatever the reason, the fact is that you aren’t able to login to your Joomla backend and need to find a solution. The only solution is to reset your password.

In most cases of resetting the password, you would simply need to login to your Joomla backend and reset the password in the User Manager, but how do you do this if you can’t login to change it?
