Request from Joomla to reset password
If you have lost your Joomla password, you can request from Joomla to send you an email with a link to a password reset page. Your administrator login page does not have such a function, but your frontend login page does.
-But I don’t have a frontend login, you might say.
-Yes you do, is my reply.
Just type in the URL http://[replacewithyourfancydomainname.xxx]/index.php?option=com_user&view=login and you will arrive at your frontend login page containing two links for request of login information:
- Forgot your Password?
- Forgot your Username?
Just click the first one if you forgot your password. This will take you to a password reset page. Just follow the instruction and you are back on track.
