I spent 30 minutes trying to reset the Presta Shop Admin password via PhpMyAdmin (MD5 (cookie+password)) with no luck.

Then I stumbled upon this post (click here for link) – a huge thank you to the author – saved me a from going crazy.

To reset the password make sure you download and edit this file (it is part of the attachments in the above link) “prestashop_pword_hash.php”

Edit the file and change $cookieKey and $newPassword

Once done upload it to your webserver and run the file. Copy the output MD5 hash string from your browser and paste it into the “ps_employee” table under the “passwd” column and hit Go.

This should hopefully get you in.
