  • I cannot remember the login id or password when trying to administer my blog. Unfortunately without the login you have no way of retreiving a new password.

    How do I reset both or retrieve my login?

  • I also have this concern. No login, no password and no phpadmin. I searched previous posts, and read about phpmyadmin. I tried to download phpadmin and windows said it couldn’t run the program. Thanks for all your help.

    Windows doesn’t run the program. You uncompress phpMyAdmin into a directory on your server.

    What access do you have to your MySQL database?

    So, there you are at http://yourdomain.com/YourBlog/wp-login.php, pondering how to proceed.

    For 99% of WordPress blog owners the user name is “admin”. Not “Admin” nor “ADMIN”. Just plain ol’ “admin.”
    Knowing that, the “Lost Your Password” link on the login screen becomes much more useful. 🙂

    marijkerina, with any due respect, youre worrying about the wrong thing. That site, if its yours, really needs to be upgraded. YOU might not be able to retrieve your password, but with a few widely available exploits, others most certainly can.
