    Hi,

    I have taken over the Recipe Blog' at

    http://www.polsco.co.uk/recipes/index.php

    It was setup by a business that doesn't exist anymore and nobody knows either the Username OR Password.

    How can I reset them?

    Thanks,

    Bass Stewart

    Use phpMyAdmin or equivalent to edit the table named wp_users. Find an administrative account. Then manually change its e-mail address to yours. And use those administrative username and e-mail address to have a new password issued.

    I have the same problem.

    I can't find anything like phpMyAdmin.

    Should I use the config?

    You should be able to access phpMyAdmin through your hosting control panel. Look for a "mysql" or "databases" section.

    If you're look for it in amongst your WordPress files, then you're looking the wrong place.
