Lost password with an inaccessible email address for reset (7 posts)

    Hi, I've registered under this new username because I have lost my password to my original login and I can't access the email account associated with the site anymore to get the password reset email.

    My site is ravenandlight.com

    I foolishly changed the email address associated with the site to the actual site admin account, so now I can't access the password reset email without logging in, which is what I need the password for! Doh!

    Can anyone help me retrieve/reset my login so I can access my website again?
    Thank you!!!

    See:

    And your login here has absolutely no connection with your login for your self-hosted WordPress site.

    Hi, I really can't get anywhere near my admin panel. All I can do is go to ravenandlight.com. When I try to log in there, it directs me to the WordPress login page.

    I seem to remember my username (raven108) but the password I have written down that I used does not work anymore.

    I don't know which email address the "password reset" email is going to. None that I have access to without access to the admin panel of the site.

    Am I going about this wrong? Am I supposed to access it from somewhere else?

    I don't understand the mySQL instructions - my host does not have a place for me to use this- and don't know how to get into any kind of php without getting into the site. I'm a beginner and those instructions don't lead me anywhere I understand.

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I just logged in to the site a few days ago with the password I am trying to use now.

    Any help anyone can offer?

    I can't even uninstall and reinstall wordpress, can I?

    I really appreciate any guidance.

    Please see the pages at the links I posted above. Right now, they offer the only way to regain access to your site.
