I've forgotten my admin login pass and using .../index.php/admin/index/forgotpassword does not do anything. I do not get any email! How to fix this.


By debugging the ...app\code\core\Mage\Adminhtml\controllers\IndexControll‌​‌​‌​er.php I noticed in line 225 public function forgotpasswordAction() the $params = $this->getRequest()->getParams(); is empty! As it does not wait to enter the email address. In other words, this function checks the $params = $this->getRequest()->getParams(); before loading the forgotpassword form for entering an email!

  • can you debug the code???
