How do I get my admin user name/pw?

  • I can’t find my user name/password to my site admin. How do I contact WordPress? I can’t find a contact email anywhere. Thanks.

  • What do you want from “wordpress”?

    Your blog is your blog – has nothing to do with this site.

    When you installed your WP blog on your domain, your server – WP gave you the username (=admin) and the password.
    It even sent you an email if you put in a real address.

    Hi Moshu,

    I’m not talking about the access info to server, but to the admin portion of WP. I did get an email from WP with a login (admin) and a password, but it’s telling me the pw is incorrect. When I try to get my password, I get an error message: “The e-mail could not be sent.
    Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function…”.

    By the way, all the user name on WP are ‘admin’?


    Yes, at the intiall install the username is always “admin”.

    If WP cannot send you the new pw, that’s an issue with your host – as the error message tells you clearly! We cannot do anything about it.

    You can try these fixes:
    (if have phpmyadmin access)

    More options:

    I had this issue once, so I manually edited the admin user in the database. To get the password right I made a quick page on a site and encrypted it:

    echo md5(‘password’);

    Then grab the hashed value and stick in the DB.
