I have been trying to log in to my WordPress site for two days, with no luck. I discovered that my password wasn’t working anymore. I tried to reset it using the “lost password” feature, which asked me to check my e-mail for instruction. But there was no e-mail. I repeated the process about a half-dozen times, but no success. Then, following Codex instruction, I tried to reset it through FTP. FTP said my new password has been set, but when I tried to log in using the new password, I got the same message, saying the password was incorrect. I see the option of resetting the password through “phpMyAdmin.” I don’t know how to go about it. I of course could have reset it through the User feature, but that requires me log on to my site, which I can't do because of not having a password that works.
By the way, the problem occurred after the Best Buy Geek Squad put in 4GB memory into my laptop. I wonder if that could be the cause.
Can anyone help?
