Changing password

With database

To change your password to "demo", open phpMyAdmin and open the table s_core_auth in your database, here you have to edit the entry for your desired user wit the following data:


password: $2y$10$av4vFeRXw8d/f5bEaV.pzu5J4nEsEiaV/mAbxskbtYhf.HfFitMzW
encoder: bcrypt


After this, you can login to your shop with the new password.




If you can access your shop with SSH, you can create a new Admin user with the following CLI command:


php bin/console sw:admin:create


You can find more information about the Shopware CLI here:  Shopware CLI documentation


php bin/console sw:admin:create --email=$EMAIL --username=$USERNAME --name=$NAME --locale=$LOCALE --password=$PASS --no-interaction
