    Hi all,

    Sorry if this is a bit of a newbie question! I've recently installed WordPress on a hosting account. After installation I went to the wp-login.php page and realised I wasn't sure what my login details would be i.e would they be those of the hosting or do I need to set up a new wordpress account specifically to this site? Also do I need to map the account to this site (which appears to cost!).

    Many thanks in advance.

    Did you go through the Finishing installation section where login details are provided?

    Hello there,

    If you forget your password you can always reset it from your MySQL.

    UPDATE wp_users SET user_pass=MD5('password') WHERE user_login='user';

    However you must use a strong password in a real production server. So please, change password by the strong password of your choice.


    A strong password is at least 16 characters long and contains numbers, uppercase letters, lowercase letters and some other characters.
