For some reason, you might forgotten your osCommerce administrator login detail or you no longer able to log in anymore.
To overcome this problem, you may refer to the following step,
1. Log into the cPanel and navigate to the PHPMyAdmin icon.
2. Select the database used by the osCommerce and go to the administrators table.
3. Click on the Empty button to purge the administrators table data. (Assume you have only one administrator)
4. Now, go to your administrator page and you may enter the new administrator username and password.
Today, I have found out HELM4 Control Panel do not allow me to log into my control panel and this is happened to the Administrator account.
I’m sure that the password used is corrected as I have password application to keep the password but it is still not allow me to log in.

Do you think the WordPress administrator login is secure enough? As a system administrator, I have received lots of report that hackers(bad user) always logged into their WordPress administrator page and modified their themes and make the WordPress page an under attack pages.
How could them make this done? With a Wi-Fi connection from HotSpot, PC that affected by Viruses, Trojan, etc. They could easily caused this problem.
However you can get the Secure Sockey Layer (SSL) Certificate to encrypted your administrator login. To get this done, you may buy SSL certificate from your hosting provider and force your WordPress back-end with SSL(https) page.
To get this done, open the wp-config.php from your WordPress file and enter the command below from last line.(actually any line will do)
