Admin and directory path won't change

Added by Matthew M about 6 years ago

I've followed all kinds of tutorials on how to change the admin password but nothing works. I've quadruple checked the Windows permissions and allowed all for everyone. I've done this through cmd too. I recognize that the web interface doesn't seem to be able to change the php file, but I'm at a loss as to what to do. Is there something I'm missing? Is windows being funky somewhere in not letting the permissions I changed actually work? It's really frustrating because when I change the password, a message says it is successfully changed. But when I log out, the admin user needs the default password like I didn't change anything. Any help would be appreciated!
