These days hackers are EVERYWHERE! If you are ever unfortunate enough to have your site hacked and your Admin user account info changed by the hacker, the info below will help you regain access.

Please Note: You can ONLY do this if you are the site owner with access to your websites control panel. If for some reason you don’t know the details of your control panel login then contact your hosting provider.


  • Log into your cPanel/Control panel
  • Find the ‘Database’ section
  • Click on PHPMyAdmin
  • Select your Coppermine database from the list
  • Click on the Users table and then click on the ‘insert’ tab
  • Next step is to fill in the following fields to create your new user:

  • ID – Leave this field empty (it will automatically assign an ID)
  • user_group – Change this to 1 (which is for admin privileges)
  • user_active – Change this to yes
  • user_login – Insert the username you want to use
  • user_pass – Add a password for your account and then select MD5 (from the drop down menu)
  • user_email – Add the email address you want to use
  • user_email_valid – Change this to yes
  • Once finished with the above steps, click on ‘Go’

    I’ve decided to start off with something that everyone in the fansite world should already know, yet not everyone actually does – Batch Upload with Coppermine.

    This simple step by step tutorial will help you understand how to batch upload images to your gallery via your FTP program. STAY AWAY FROM THE UPLOAD FILE BUTTON (USERPICS)!

    So many fansite owners out there are still using the ‘upload file’ button without realising that there is a much simpler and quicker way to get pictures uploaded to their galleries. All you need is an FTP program such as Filezilla (free program). Using the ‘batch add files’ button has some benefits. As well as it being simple and fast, it also keeps things looking a lot more organised and if you ever need to replace pictures with better quality or untagged versions, rather than deleting and re-uploading (losing your views), you can just overwrite your original file with the updated version and then run admin tools to update it (more about that later in another post).

    Okay, so here we go – step by step…
