Edit admin.vars file:
Code
Select All
### User variables for ID: admin ###

'password',"ISMvKXpXpadDiUoOSoAfww"
'realname',"YaBB Administrator"
'email',"webmaster@example.com"
'regdate',"11/08/05 at 15:00:00"
'webtitle',"Yet another Bulletin Board" 



and replace highlighted password with a plain text word eg: mother, then save and CHMOD 666, enter forum and use password mother

Hi John,

Thanks for the info.

But When I checked my admin.vars it is like this

### User variables for ID: admin ###

'password',"cheetah"
'realname',"Forum Admin"
'email',"admin@mysite.com"


I tried to login after changing it to "mother" and then chmod 666 but it is still not working.

Please help  Undecided

The username did it have capitols on the name used for Admin ?  username and passwords are case sensitive...

If still having problems.... PM me the URL to your forum

Edited:
Ashish, this is not a support board for YaBB, Please post in the proper board.

Hi John,

Thanks for your help.

I will start a new topic now in Support Forum of "Installation and Setup on Linux, UNIX, Mac, and BSD Servers" , is that correct ?
