    Try the steps listed on this page in the “through phpmyadmin” section.

    Hi, this video by figaro, is excellent at describing how to change password via phpmyadmin.
    hope it helps.

    Tanks very much for your answers, but maybe i explain bad,

    the problem is this, the guy who hack my FORUM delete the “ADMIN USER”

    the database of the FORUM was conected to the database of the WORDPRESS so when he delete the admin user from the forum also delete the admin user from the wordpress.

    i delete “ADMIN” long time ago and i enter as admin with other nickname, so when i create a new user usin mysql call “ADMIN” or my deleted admin user that i use before this was delete, and i try to enter to WORDPRESS DASHBOARD this new user that i created has not all privilegies in the blog.

    I just whant to know how to create a new “ADMIN” user using mysql or other method with all the privilegies.


    now i am working on this, and i think is a posible solution but i dont know if works.

    1.- i am creating a database of everything, also the two databases,

    2.- make a fresh wordpress install, with a new admin user, new database.

    3.- import the old database and restore all files

    so i think should fix the problem

    I am not sure you need to go to that much trouble.

    Find your user number.
    Do select * from wp_usermeta where user_id = ‘yourusersnumber’

    Check the meta_value for wp_capabilities it should read like

    Also wp_user_level for your user should be 10.
