Resetting password on MySQL server

I had a password reset issue and now I don’t have access to ownCloud anymore. I updated it in the database itself, but here I’m facing a question:

How do I have to encrypt the password in the database?

I tried “md5”, but it didn’t work. Plain also doesn’t work (as expected :wink: ).

Thanks for any hint!

Have you considered using occ from a shell?


Thanks for the feedback!

It’s a shared hosting. No shell access, unfortunately…

I changed the password in the database directly. So I believe I only have to figure out how ownCloud encrypts their passwords before saving…
