    This is a question that gets asked a lot on the forums so here is the way of going about resetting your WeBid admin password.

    Unfortunately there is no easy way to reset, update your admin password if you lost or forgotten it then it's gone for good.

    The instructions bellow will explain how to get round this problem and reset the admin password.

    1. Open PHPMyAdmin from your web hosting control panel and navigate to your WeBid database
    2. Locate and click on the admin_users table in the database
    3. Put a check in the little box beside all of your admin users that you see listed NOTE: if you see no check box beside the admin users then you first need to assign one of the columns as a primary before any options will show up, I usually set the ID column as the primary.
    4. Once you have your admin users checked select the delete option
    5. Go back to your WeBid admin in your browser and you will be asked to input a new username and password.
