I am running a self hosted WordPress Blog. Due to a computer crash I lost all my Password data. Since I have several e-mail addresses and I do not remember which one I was using during the installation I cannot recover my password the normal way. Can you help me please as I am not able to login to my admin page.
Can you access your database via Phpmyadmin? If so, your user email address will be in the wp_users table.
I do not know how to use Phpmyadmin, I however can access the root files of my host where my WP is hosted. I looked around in there but can't locate any e-mail address. I can see the following folder:
Please let me know either on how to reset the password or better to retrieve the original e-mail address used to sign up for WP
The details are in the database - not within the files on your server. You need to access the database.

Dear Esmi & Figaro,
You guys rock! Great video and now I understand the entire issue. In my host pannel I found the mySQL database but do not have any admin access. I mailed my host, Network Solutions and await their reply how to gain admin access. Will update you on this issue.
Thanks again to both of you.

your database infomation located in your wordpress site root, a file called "wp-config.php", you just connect it using the db info, no need admin permissions.
