  • I have like 2 years I don’t login to my blog! And I just have a big crush in my computer so I had to format my entire disk! And I lost my email account my passwords and all that stuff

    I can access the server and the files of my wordpress folder via transmit but I don’t remember the login or the password! Is any way I can reset the password and the login? Or is there a file in my server ware I can see the login and the password? Please let me know1 I don’t want to reinstall wordpress! It took me like a year to install it and get it up ad running! So I don’t want to do that!! Any help?
    thanks for your times !

    Thank you, your sarcasm is not appreciated. Login to your WordPress database via phpmyadmin and follow these instructions:

    Sorry but is not sarcasm if somebody wants to help out and respond a question or something I think that person first has to read the post and read it GOOD not the first line only and write the first things it come ups to his mind! !

    dont you think?

    Thanks for the respond!

    Contact your web host for help logging in to your web host. 🙂

    error: He can log into his web host. He said he can access the files, he needs to change his wordpress password.

    bek: Maybe you should read and do what we ask you to. MacmanX gave you a tutorial to reset your password

    Follow that and you’ll be able to login. Try reading something other than the first line and calm down. I’m sure this isn’t a life or death situation.
