[resolved] Password Won't Reset (4 posts)

    I've had some issues with my host for my WordPress blog. The initial incident was a broken path, which was resolved, however somewhere along the line the password for my actual WordPress was changed. I swear this should be an easy fix, right? Well even when I try to go through the Lost Your Password? option, I get the following message on a page:

    The e-mail could not be sent.
    Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function...

    So, I effectively cannot get my password reset, it's not any variation of one of the passwords I use, nor anything else I can think of. Somehow it got altered and now I'm trying to figure out how to get my password or even access to the account. Is there a way to reset your password, without using the reset password option? And I have checked with my host, but they don't have an answer or a fix.

    I've attempted to change the password, the login and the email address and I'm still not able to log in. I had to watch the video to get the MD5 coding, but I figured that out - which made that string a whole lot more understandable! Even changing the email address, I'm getting the message that the host cannot send a new password. Any other ideas?

    Okay, this is going to sound stupid, but I just changed the email address and kept trying to get it to send me a new password and eventually it actually worked.... I must have rolled the dice really well on the last click!
