I have 2 other recent post here explaining the problems i encounter when tryimg to access a website and make what I thought would be minor changes.
After much wasted time and frustration I’ve installed Drupal7 and Wampserver on my local pc to noodle and learn.
I “think” my problem with the live website is i’m not logging on as administrator and therefore the dashboard etc. is unavailable to me. This is a gues as I don’t know if you can set Drupal up to do this but it makes sense to have different appearences for different users esp user1. ?Can Drupal be set up to hide/display controls depending upon ser?
If this is the case i need to reset the admin password, maybe user name. The original developer walked out leaving no documentation so I’m in the dark. Tracked down a snippet of SQL to change admin password, http://www.drupaltricks.com/how-reset-drupal-admin-password, but can I confirm the username first?
I’m hitting the wall here b/c if I can’t access the admin acc & use the dashboard I can’t make any updates,
Could someone confirm/deny my belief re/ displaying the dashbaord only to someone logging in as admin and hidden to all others?
Can I losate the pswd via other means (the retreive pswd page doesn’t display) Can I recover if I force a a sql query update on the admin pswd via myphp and it doesn’t work?
Again help is always appreciated
