New owner of old blog (3 posts)

    I am the new owner of a site that includes a blog. I can't access the administration because the old owner has the password and didn't tell me about it. Now I can't contact them. Is there anyway I can get control for admin purposes?
    PS, I don't know much about this and realise I have a lot of reading to do, but I feel I need to get this sorted first.

    the user name is likely "admin"
    to reset password use one of these methods

    Thanks for that, I managed to guess the password once I had admin as the user, and have changed it now. Thanks very much for your help, now I have to learn how to use it!
