    I set up a website using wordpress.org. I created a user name and password and didn't make any record of it and none of the possibilities that I thought it could be are working. I also tried to retrieve that information at the email address I thought I used and none of those are working. Please help. Thanks.

    Hi

    Your best bet is to get access to the database and change your user information directly in the database.

    See here

    or here

    You can reset the username, password, email address directly

    The database solutions are fine for someone with access to the database but what about registered subscribers? Why doesn't the simple "forgot your password?" email work?
