  • You really need access to your database to reset your password in this kind of situation.

    Hey thanks for the note esmi. I had reset the password but that didn’t seem to work. I suppose I need to reset the username then. Would you or anyone else happen to know where I could find that? Or better yet point me to docs to show where it’s normally stored? The reason I ask is because I suspect I’ve deleted the database entry altogether, so will need to create it again in order to login.

    Thanks again!

    Using Phpmyadmin (or another MySQL management tool), first backup your database. Then navigate to your wp_user table and see if there is a record for a user with an id of 1.
