How to Manually Change a Member’s Password in phpFox

This article will show you how to change a member’s password in phpFox.

Once in a while you may receive an email from a member, stating that they are having an issue logging in and you may need to manually change their password.  This is a simple task that you can perform.

Login to your phpFox admincp, and select Users > Browse Users.


Locate the member that needs the password change and click the dropdown arrow to the left of the user name.  Select Edit User.


On the Edit User page, type in the new password and place a checkmark in the box to confirm that you want to edit the Password field.


When done, select Update.

One thing to note, when making a change to sensitive information such as a user password, etc, you will want to confirm that the person requesting the password change is in fact the member that he/she states that they are.  You do not want to give access to a member’s account to an unauthorized person.  It is very important that you make sure that you protect your members and their information that they have chosen to share on your website.

Congratulations, you are now able to manually change a member’s password.
