Lost password/username

  • Is there anyway to retrieve or get a new password/username? I used roboform for my passwords/usernames and must have inadvertantly overwritten the one for my blog. I have more than 300 stored, too many to remember and cannot remember what the username or even the email address was that I used to set up my blog. I don’t want to lose the blog, it is biz related rather than personal and is used by many of my list subscribers to get updates and leave comments.

    Thanks,
    D.

  • Last chance?: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/phpmyadmin/

    If you can’t do that, contact your host.

    Will my webhost have access to password/username?

    They may be willing/able to access to your MySQL db (where your WP user/pass is stored), perhaps resetting your MySQL user/pass.

    I have the exact same problem. How come the “Lost your password? ” function doesn’t work? I get a new pass but I can’t loggin……. this mysql routine freak me out as I’m not good at mysql. Plus my host is not to willing to do such thing for me.

    I have the exact same problem.

    Actually you don’t, the OP doesn’t have the original email address.

    How come the “Lost your password? ” function doesn’t work?

    Works well for others… You can’t login to WP with the info sent you? If so, post some details, any changes, specific errors, etc.

    I followed the phpmyadmin and it worked – thanks so much for this. I inadvertently forgot to print out the info for my latest blog and had forgotten it all.
