  • Resolved moritherapy


    hi there – i’m kind of freaking out. i can’t get into my blog. neither my name nor my password nor my various email addresses seem to work.

    i had someone set up my blog a little while ago and this person never gave me all the info. i wonder whether he reset everything.

    PLEASE help me!!!!!! this is a work-related blog, and i absolutely need it.

  • Did you try the “recover password” feature at the login page?

    Odds are, your user id is “admin” (case sensitive).

    if u have access to phpmyadmin in your host control panel , you can try to see the user name and email , and you can also edit them .

    next step would be to rest the pass .

    no, it doesn’t like “admin” anymore. tried all kinds of other possible names, with no result. tried retieve password. whatever i do, i get a “sorry, this user doesn’t exist in your database.” now i’m rooting around in my files, using php, can’t seem to find myphp.

    This might help (assuming you locate phpMyAdmin) It’s a tutorial on resetting the password manually.

    this was all a little over my head, plus i was so panicked, i didn’t know what i was doing. luckily, i came across a wordpress user at my host’s support (1&1) and he did it all for me. thanks to you guys and thanks to keith at 1&1!!!
