Reset Drupal Passwords in Easier Way

Clone index.php file and create new file with following coding. I have highlighted the changes by adding comments. Replace the password you want to set and try to open in the url.
You will get hashed version of your password. Now, I assume you have database access if you’re making such changes on file level. Go to PHPMyAdmin or If you’re daring on console and replace the pass under user_field_data table.

Further, There could be changes, you’re still getting Invalid Logins.
Clear out the following tables:

  • flood
  • cache_entity

Don’t worry, We are not deleting something important in Drupal. Flood table basically block the IP which tried many failed attempts on login screen and cache_entity is related to cached version of Drupal copy, you might be getting.
