Are you sure you spelled your installation folder correctly? “wordperss” is an unusual folder name, but if that’s what it is, so be it.
Is your site’s front page visible? You just cannot login to the admin area?
You may not be using the password WP thinks you should be using. There are several alternative ways to reset your password besides the email method since most localhosts do not actually send out email. In some cases emails are logged though not sent. If your installation logs emails you can still use the email method by getting the reset URL from the log. If there is no email log, use one of the other methods.
I personally prefer the phpMyAdmin method, but use whatever method you feel most comfortable with.
