I have WordPress installed locally under MAMP (Mac OS X Lion), and recently attempted to change my admin password via the Admin UI. When I tried to save the change, I got a 403 error, and am no longer able to login to my WordPress installation. Interestingly, I can still view the WP installation (at http://localhost:8888/wordpress/ ).
Error 403 We're sorry, but we could not fulfill your request for /wordpress/wp-login.php on this server. You do not have permission to access this server. Data may not be posted from offsite forms.
I have tried resetting my WP password through phpMyAdmin, but to no avail.
Are there other workarounds or things I should check? TIA!
