I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
What admin password? OSC doesn't have a password system except for accessing the database..
If that's the database password you need to change, you can run through the install again (make sure to deselect installing databases) and change it that way...
If I delete the existing user - won't I lose everything that was built under that user?.
I must have set it up through Cpanel...as I haven't used any contrubtions..
I do know that I have seperate passwords for logging into Cpanel, and the Admin in OSC.....
If you use CPanel to delete the existing user, it won't effect your store at all. Password protecting directories doesn't make any difference to the content for that directory..
For example- my catalog admin directory is password protected using cpanel. If I wanted a new username or password for that directory, all I would do was delete that user name from the CPanel, and then assign a new one..
Is this what you are talking about? Having a password for your catalog/admin directory?..
When I click on the Change Password icon in Cpanel - there is only an option to change a single password:.
Mayne this will help...I think I know how to change the cpanel password....
The admin one though....not too sure where I'm going with this...
Ok, you seem to want to change the password protecting your /admin directory..
Go to your CPanel.
Click "password protect directories".
You should see a directory structure here. Something like:.
/ current folder.
Click on the word "admin".
Now you should see something like:.
(gold lock image) Directory requires a password to access via the web (you must check this to activate password protection)..
Beneath "active users" you should see the user name on the left hand side in a box..
If you click on that name, you can delete it..
Or, you can type that name next to tbe "add/modify authorised users" button, and type a new password in the box next to "change password.".
I don't think I can get any more explicit than this, so if this doesn't help, perhaps someone can explain better. Also, you can only change the password of that particular user in that particular directory. Other directories will require the same process to be repeated. This is not changing your cpanel password, which would be given to you when you sign up..

Quick question for the pros here....
I need to change the password in my admin side of OSC...how do I do it?.
I found out how to change the password for my cpanel side of things...
A little nudge in the right direction please!.
It all depends upon how you have password proteciton setup, did you do it via the cpanel or are you using a contribution? if via the cpanel, then just delete the current user you have setup, and then recreate a new user with a password for the directory...
