  • I am getting the exact same thing, as well as the person in this thread:

    Looking around, it appears as if the issue might be somewhat related to mod_security. I disabled as whooami explained in this thread:

    However, after doing so I am getting the message that the key is invalid:

    Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid.

    When I used the lost password function here on, the key it sent me was entirely upper and lower case alpha… however, on my own installation, the key contains every kind of character, like such: cg$(i)G7… My guess would be that it was those characters messing things up, but it may in fact be something else.

    My workaround was to manually go into the database, in the wp_users table, and manually change the user_activation_key field to strictly alpha characters, and then manually build the url, as such:

    And then visiting that page worked fine. However, this work around would obviously not be viable for everyone, since many people will not have the same backend access or understand how to browse the database.

    I have no idea about that backend access. Any other suggesstions??
