How to reset the Joomla Administrator password
 
04:57
http://www.BuildAJoomlaWebsite.com - this tutorial demonstrates what to do if you lose access to the Joomla Administrator. You can't actually reset the password as such, but you can easily change it using a tool that is often provided by web hosts called phpMyAdmin. This is a fairly easy process, however it does require you to make a change directly in the database. If you are uncomfortable doing this, you might like to ask your web host if they can do it for you.

Moving a Joomla installation to a new folder using cPanel
 
07:44
Transcript: http://www.buildajoomlawebsite.com/blog/tutorial/move-a-joomla-installation-to-a-new-folder-using-cpanel Where do you build your Joomla website, when you already have a live website? You could build the Joomla site locally, but this can be problematic and doesn't allow an outsider to access the development site. You could setup a second web hosting account, but this costs money. Or you could build the new site inside a sub-folder of your existing site and move everything when you're ready to change. That's a popular approach, but what is the right way to move the files? This video tutorial demonstrates our recommended procedure.
