forgotten password

  • Just go to the admin page and use the Lost Password feature, assuming you set up a valid admin email address.

    if you did not set up a valid email address, go the database directly and change the option for the email address manually, then use the password retrieval to get a new password to be generated and sent to that email address.

    navigate to your login panel

    /wp-login.php

    and theres a retrieve password link. it will send it to the email you submitted on installation

    navigate to your login panel

    /wp-login.php

    and theres a retrieve password link. it will send it to the email you submitted on installation

    I have tried that option and receive the email. However, when I click on the link I get the following message from WordPress:

    Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid.

    I have tried this several times and have no luck.

    Anyone with suggestions?

    I’m having the same problem with the message:

    Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid.

    I setup 2.5.1 cleanly, then imported the db from another wordpress installation with an export command. None of the accounts that I know the passwords for work.

    OR you can search the forums and see that this is a bug with a supposedly working fix listed on trac —

    I found a solution to this. If you go the db interface and reset the password for your user using an MD5 hashing function. You’ll be able to login with the password. The system will automagically do it’s thing to transform the MD5 password into the WP2.5.1 munged version the first time you login, however that happens.
