can`t reset admin password

i used the instructions on: and it works fine but still no access by admin - admin  

if i follow the instructions again ... the database gives me errors for duplicate content ... so the information should be there


i also added a new user "systemadmin" with that i can login ... but no chance to add this user to the apropriat user-group


any idea?

Dear Mark,

And you have already restarted the environment / ordered user directories?

Hi Jeremy,

yes i did so ... multiple times also getting the right order from the database

best regards


could deleting the admin user help?

or adding an other user to adminstrators ? -- just don`t know how to do that poperly

HA! Deleting admin out of cwd_user and putting  it back in helped ... no idea why ... really strange

thanks for your interest jeremy

Friendly Regards,
