Password lost, email of new password looks corrupt (3 posts)

    Hello there. I have been using WordPress for my site for almost a year now. I needed my WP password emailed to me while I was away and on a different computer, but when I received the email it appeared to be glitched. For example instead of seeing "Login: Password: etc" I see this:

    Subject: [] Your login and password

    Mime-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: BASE64


    Once I had the password sent, my old one was seemingly killed, so now I have no way to login to my master account. I want to change some links on my page and do some other admin level stuff, but the only other registered account is a level 9, and he can't do the level 10 stuff.

    Is there any other way for me to restore a master account for my page? Or is this type of garbled email a known issue? Any help would greatly appreciated, I use my WP a lot.

    Thanks. =)

    Assuming you have PHPMyAdmin, Podz (as ever) has the answer:

    I am filled with glee, you have no idea how happy I am now. A quick fix and now I'm back on track with full power. Bravo! Much obliged, and Podz that guide was flawless and perfectly executed.
