While I try to change the default John Doe user and the user groups, I put there my admin name and save it with some restrictions and other password.
Now, I can log in the administration side only as one user and I can't reach the System menu. :-[
In other words I executed a self-restriction. :choke:
Can I correct this?

I don't remember. I just know that I put my admin name somewhere and save it with another password,
then create some other user and changed the options of some existing group.
Realizing that something is wrong, I change some names again but anyway I lost access to the system folder.

Now, I remember my admin password that I created during the installation but when I try to log in
the program says that admin name doesn't mach the password.

Followed should provide a working solution: http://www.speckygeek.com/how-to-reset- ... -password/ . It should also work with Opencart v3.x releases.

Well, I executed the steps in the above link. But this just changed my password to another one.
I still don't have access to the System folder in the dashboard.
The drop down menu of the System folder only shows "Localisation".
I don't see neither "Settings" nor "Users" options.

Thanks for helping me!
I follow the link but I need clarification here:

1. To change false with true? right?

Code: Select all

public function hasPermission($key, $value) {
		if (isset($this->permission[$key])) {
			return in_array($value, $this->permission[$key]);
		} else {
			return false;
		}
2. What does this mean?:
"...Don't forget to remove the edit after you've done that, or permissions will not be checked at all."

According to the instructions, it does indicate it's true.

After restoring your access, however, do NOT forget to reverse the process in the instructed codes for protection purposes.

Not working.
I changed return false; to return true;

The instruction is not clear, actually according to the instruction all the code in { } should be deleted and substituted with return true;
Should I do that?

That is not what it's indicated. The return true should be added after the hasPermission line.

Great and don't forget to remove that added line once you gain back access and restored all checkboxes from the administrators group in the Opencart admin.
