cannot change password (4 posts)

    I somehow forgot my account password, and used the Get new password feature. I received a link to reset the password, and when I click on it I get this error:

    Not Acceptable

    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /blog/wp-login.php could not be found on this server.

    Of course, the file is there. If I cut the 'key' argument and leave only the 'action' argument in the link, it finds it. I looked into the database, and the user has the 'user_activation_key' field set to the key received in the link.

    Any ideas how to make this work? Thank you very much.

    I actually cracked this myself: I generated the MD5 hash for a new password, wrote it directly into the database, and worked like a charm. :)

    Is there a step by step process to change a password?
