    Try resetting your password through MySQL or PhpMyAdmin.

    I'm having this same issue, but I tried resetting my password through MY SQL and it's still not working.

    I contacted GoDaddy (my host) and they couldn't do anything and bounced me back over to Word Press saying it's their problem.

    Can someone help since I can't get into this site anymore!
