lost email/password for ADMIN! (6 posts)

    I am a volunteer for a nonprofit organization, called Priest River Ministries. Our website, prmafw.org, is hosted using WordPress (not sure the version,) and I am having an awful dilemma... The volunteers before me have left no record of what e-mail they used to sign up as the WordPress admin for our website, and for some reason the password has been changed and I can no longer log in with the known username/password that I have done so with before.
    I have NO IDEA why, but now I cannot log in at all, and I cannot "recover password" because the password recovery is not sent to the e-mail we now use for our nonprofit communcation...something I didn't know. Unfortunately there is no record of what e-mail was used to sign up with it, and I have exhausted all my detective skills in trying to track it down...to no avail... The last thing I can possibly do is contact you, WordPress, to help me with this. :( I do NOT want the organization to lose the whole website just because of this. Please help!!!

    Hello, I too have an issue but not the same as PriestRiverMinistries. I had a good working password that is now not working. When I ask it to send me the password to email it says the host 'might' have dissabled the email system (uh??) so now I can't even have it sent to my email!
    I looked at your link above and it keeps suggesting one use the 'USERS' under the admin pannel but my admin pannel does not have users?? it only has Register, Log in, Entries RSS, Comments RSS, and WordPress.org as options. So, is our website disabled?? Please help.

    I finally did more digging and the admin panel is only accessible once you log in. But.. if you can't login because your password is not working then there is mo means of getting to the admin panel. sigh!
