Creating Omeka User from the Database

Note: this article covers the workaround to access a user's Omeka Dashboard for troubleshooting errors. You can always change the admin password in Installatron, but that can be disruptive for the end user and this workaround avoids that. While this article was originally written with Domain of One's Own admins in mind, this might be helpful for anyone, so long as you have access to the user's cPanel/database.


From the user’s cPanel, navigate to Databases Section and select PHPMyAdmin.

You should now see a new Super User at the end of the table:

As a final step, you can now set your password by requesting a password reset within the Omeka dashboard interface:

^ Click Lost your Password, submit your email address, and wait for the new password in your inbox.
