  • Hi @alice16pontual,

    You should still be able to login with the wrong email address.

    Or is it that you lost the password and can’t reset it because the password reset email doesn’t come to you?

    If that’s the case, do you have access to cPanel or the database itself? Using a tool like phpMyAdmin will allow you to change the details of your user account.

    Here’s a solid article about how to do so:

    Hi alice16pontual,

    One way is to use phpMyadmin to modify your current email in database. For your connivance follow following steps

    1- Login to your cPanel
    2- Click phpMyAdmin icon
    3- Select the database from next screen
    4- Select the “WP_users” table
    5- Click the pencil icon (left side) of the user i.e “admin”
    6- Replace the required email in “user_email”

    Hope this will help you,

    Kind Regards,
    Kashif
