  • THis page lists the different options for resetting a password:

    If your website is hosted by GoDaddy, then use their control panel (they shoud have provided you with login details to access this) to access the website files and database.

    Take backups of any file or the database before making any changes, just in case.

    I have an issue where I login to WordPress as Admin, it shows my website name at the top of the page but that is it. I have no controls for me to edit ANYTHING on the site. It was created on WordPress with the Elementor plugin. Through the plugin dashboard I can see like 3 pages I can click on to ‘edit’ but it gives me a page saying “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”

    The site itself is still up and running, it just looks like I have no control over it anymore and I’m not sure what happened. Especially as I am the only one that ‘should’ have access to edit the site.

    Any information is much appreciated. I am sooooo lost and really need to make changes. It is a website for the 19 year old free Clinic that I have worked at for 9 years.

    One more thought, @chcadvocate
