[Plugin: Stealth Login] - Lost password (4 posts)

    Installed Sl and have everything running smoothly.
    Then I went and totally lost my password - it was an auto-generated x 2 mash-up of passwords, so tight even I can't find out what I thought it was.

    Needless to say I now unable to access admin.

    How can I get back in to admin and turn SL off so I can reset my main WP admin password, get back in and then reset everything?

    Will simply deleting the plugin via ftp do the trick?

    TIA

    As far as i remember:

    - ftp/telnet to your host
    - edit your .htaccess file in the root remove everything between # STEALTH-LOGIN and # END STEALTH-LOGIN

    you should now end up in your regular admin login screen (wp-admin) etc...

    Thanks guys.

    In the end I dug out an old backed-up file and then worked it out from there. but this wasn't until I had renamed the plugin and disabled it.
