How to Reset Password With New Email Address? (4 posts)

    Since the last time I accessed my blog I have closed out the email account I had been using in conjunction with my WP-Admin page. This wouldn't be a problem except that my login password is not longer being recognized and I need to get a new password. However, when I request a new password, the only administrator account on file is to the old, non-existent email account.

    Is there any way to add my new email account to my blog so that I can reset my password?

    Thanks,

    WT

    I did thank you and after following the instructions & changing the password in MyPhpAdmin wp-user table my login information is still not being recognized when i try to log in.

    I also changed the admin email in hopes that when i requested a password, that it would be sent to the new address but it did not recognize the new address either :-/

    Any thoughts?

    I just re-read the instructions and found the problem. I was not setting Function = MD5. I did this and it fixed the problem.

    Thanks for the link!
