    Hi,

    You can try resetting your admin password. Please see this link to reset your Admin password. It’s easiest through phpMyAdmin.

    Hi,

    thanks for your reply.
    I already changed the password via MySQL and it’s still the same error.
    (I created a Hash and injected it into the database properly).

    It still says the password is wrong although this is clearly the case.
    Could it be an issue with an auto-update of wordpress?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You don’t need to create an HASH. Enter your password in plain text via PHPMyAdmin. And then select the function as MD5.

    You can see step by step by step details here in the phpMyAdmin section:

    Thanks, but anyhow, the effect is the same. The hash stored is the right password.
    That is not the issue unfortunately.

    I assume it’s an issue with WordPress, any ideas?

    It’s strange. You could try disabling the plugins especially the one’s related to security (if you have any). To disable plugins through FTP you can rename the plugin’s folder name.

    e.g rename wp-contents/plugins/akismet to wp-contents/plugins/akismet-backup.

    I can only think of a bad plugin causing the issue otherwise I am out of ideas.
