Well, I’ve spent the entire day bloodying my skull against the wall.
I’ve tried multiple ways of getting through but nothing:
Changing your WordPress password via FTP
— (wp_set_password(‘password’,’admin’);) in the functions.php
— Using the Emergency Password Reset Script
Mind you, this is all before/after repeatedly trying to change it in phpMyAdmin.
Have read that in some cases I could just enter in the MD5 hashed password in lieu of the $P$B style which I don’t even understand. Regardless, I’ve looked up and down and trying numerous variations while still keeping my original MD5 hash saved aside just in case.
Nothing is getting me in.
Mind you, the above all began with my trying to convert my site to a multi-site. Which worked mostly, short of a couple important plugins misbehaving. So I figured to ask my host to restore my a backup with the aim of asking these plugin authors for advice. Hah! That served up a whole new world of hell! Backup after backup going back for nearly two weeks got us nowhere!
