    Hi! My apologies, I've searched some in the forum for an answer and could not find one that seemed applicable.

    Our company has an old wordpress site that we failed at horribly- our CEO keeps getting emails about comments on the few entries and we'd like to have those emails stop & remove the site entirely. The PW we have on record is incorrect.

    When I go to recover the PW an email is sent to him saying:

    Someone has asked to reset the password for the following site and username.


    Username: ahaines

    To reset your password visit the following address, otherwise just ignore this email and nothing will happen.

    With a link- when I follow it, I keep going back to the same sign in screen that says the PW will be emailed. Its not emailed- we've checked the spam folder. Maybe its too old to work? Either way we'd like to remove the site and I can't do it without the pw. :/

    Whats my best plan of attack?

    Sorry for being so wordy- thanks in advance for any help.

    There are a number of ways to reset the password:


    But you can also delete the site using FTP - you'd need to get that information from your hosting company.
