New password (from WP) won't work. (4 posts)

    I'm locked out of my wordpress page. It says my password is incorrect.
    I enter my username and email and a new password is sent to my inbox. I try to use the new password, either by copy/paste or manually typing it in, and it still says the password is incorrect.

    I've tried this seven times now with no success.

    I'm not sure which version of wordpress I have. It was set up in 2008, but it's been updated since then.

    Very odd that it won't work even with the email for forgot password.

    If you have access to your database I would do the below steps.

    Thank you, but I don't know how to do that, and the link warns against trying anything if "you doubt your ability". :(
