mBlogger Documentation - How to Change the Administrator Password
The ability to change the administrator password is in the administration panel. You may access this panel by scrolling to the bottom of any mBlogger page and click "Administrative Options". You will login using an active administrator login and password. When you have logged in you will be presented with the administration panel screen. To change your password, click "Change Administrator Password".
In the first field, labelled "Current Password", type the current password that you use to login to the administration panel currently. In the second field, lablled "New Password", type the new password you wish to use. In the last field, labelled "Verify New Password", type the new password again. This will prevent mistakes and, in result, a lost administrator account. Click on the button labelled "Change Password".
You will be provided a message stating one of four outcomes:
"Password changed successfully." - The password change is successful. No other steps are required.
"Your new password cannot be the same as your old password." - Your new password is the same as the old one. Make sure that your new password has at least one different character.
"Your new password and verification password do not match. Please retype the passwords again carefully." - The new password you entered did not match the one provided as verification. Make sure that both the "New Password" and "Verify New Password" entries are typed correctly and do not have errors.
"The current password you entered does not match the password in the database. Please check the password you entered and try again." - The current password that you provided was incorrect. Make sure that you provide the correct password and that it was typed correctly.
When you receive "Password changed successfully", your new password will immediately take effect the next time you login.
