    For some unknown reason my username has been changed on my blog login and I didn't do it. How on earth do I gain access to my blog?

    Do you have a webmaster who has access there?

    I can access it through my webhost but I have no idea what I'd need to do once I was in the cp.

    My question was if you had somebody else with access to your blog control panel.
    There is a method to reset password and/or username from phpmyadmin but requires to have some database knowledge.

    I find it odd that you said your wordpress.org blog because you can't get a blog here. These forums are for people who host their own blogs. Did you possibly mean a blog at wordpress.com? If so you'll need to go there and reset your password and/or ask at the forums there.

    Also, refer to the last post you made where you got locked out. Maybe it will help: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/301829?replies=13

    I'm sorry, I'm not quite following. I have a self hosted blog with wordpress.org not wordpress.com.

    Thanks for that link, I'll see if that helps again. This is now the second time that this has happened, anyone had this happen to them before too?

    I'm the only person who has access other than my web designer who just fixed it for me. But seeing this has happened twice is there anything I can do to increase the security for the future?

    either your web designer did changed your password or you should have him take care of security issue, in case he didn't.
