Support » Fixing WordPress » “There is a Pending Change of your Email”

  • I have read the forums on this issue, but cannot seem to get my problem resolved.

    I am trying to change the ADMIN email (which is me) from an old email address that is no longer active. When I do I get the message, “there is a pending change of your email.”

    I’ve already read this information: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2017/10/13/account-security-improvements-in-wordpress-4-9/ I get the security issue, and why this is in place, but the address I am trying to change from is not a working address, so I can not go to that address to confirm the change is valid. I am in a loop, and can’t seem to get out of it.

    This is a business I manage, and if mail is being sent from WordPress.com to that invalid address, it goes into cyberspace. This shouldn’t be so hard.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Change it in the database. Cancel the change from wp-admin, then open your database with PHPMYADMIN. Find the “admin_email” row in the wp_options table and change it there.
