I had no idea why i got locked out of my WP admin but this post literally saved me!! Roll your mouse over the user and click Edit to change the email address associated with it.Word Press will not provide you information on login access as this is a security issue. I changed wordpress password, but it only lets me to log in using it the first time i do it.If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. Then it doesnt work and tells me that aither my password or user name is wrong. Hi, I've tried the emergency reset stage to trying to reset my WP password and it still doesn't work!Remember that you can use Php Myadmin to look at (or alter) the email being used and then use the Lost Password option in the login to recover the password. I got into my PHPmyadmin, made sure it was set to the correct email AND reset my username and password.If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. When I login in it says the password is incorrect for the username I entered. " and enter my email(the same email the account is set to through PHPmyadmin) it says "A confirmation link has been sent" but when i check my email there's nothing. Thank You Hello Austin, Sorry for the problem with the password for your Word Press login.Thank you, John-Paul Hello, I added a plugin that shows my website being unavailable.
I try accessing the site but for whatever reason I don't seem to remember the password. :/Hello, I added a plugin that shows my website being unavailable. I would recommend following our guide on Troubleshooting Word Press Plugins. I'm sorry to see you're unable to recall those details.
I am not the only one on the account, so confirming the email is legit. Is this the Wordpress email that a reset link would come from? Instead, I have to have a randomly generated password, which isn't helpful if you want to open the website on several devices.
Do I have to now go through c-panel to change the password? Yes, the video is out of date since Word Press recently updated the interface.
I would like to remove that content, but I have completely forgotten anything associated with the account. This will remove all the files as well as the database.
If you installed Word Press manually, you'll need to delete the database.
My issue now is that when I hit "Lost Your Password" it takes me to the splash page that says "THIS WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE". I try accessing the site but for whatever reason I don't seem to remember the password. Disabling the plugin you installed to make your site display as unavailable should allow you to regain access to reset your Word Press password. Sincerely, Carlos EI have an old Wordpress account from 2010. I understand that can limit your ability to work with your website.
