    I have not logged into wordpress for a while. I changed my password and the username from the one wordpress gave me.
    My email was recently hacked and I have no way of obtaining the new password and I can't seem to login to my website.
    Is there anyway I can get my password and login name without an email?
    Thanks

    If your site is self-hosted, you can do that via FTP access...but if your site is at wordpress.com, try here:

    Thank you!!!

  4. But if you mean the self-hosted installation of WordPress that is listed in your profile then give this a read.

    Personally I think this one is the easiest via FTP.

    If you do go that with FTP then please remember to make a backup copy of any file you're going to edit first.
