Username and Password reset

  • Sorry, WordPress(.org) does not affiliate with its users. It is merely software.

    Ok what do you suggest I do?

    It’s not for us to say, it is not a WordPress issue.

    Ok so who’s issue is it?

    I am new to the company so it would be helpful if you could point me in the right direction as to who you suggest I contact? Thanks.

    I am sorry but this really does have absolutely nothing to do with WordPress. You need to speak with whoever handles web site management in your company.

    WordPress lives on your own server, so no one outside your organization (save any IT folks you use, etc) can reset a password for you.

    Here are some suggestions on how to do it:

    The automatic e-mailer is good if you have access to the e-mail account that would have likely been used previously.

    I’ve used the phpmyadmin method for clients in your situation. Using phpmyadmin is risky as there are no checks, so if you don’t feel comfortable using it, it may be best to refer to someone else in your company who does.

    Hope that helps!

    We haven’t the faintest idea.

    WordPress is just a piece of software. We’re not running that website and we have no control over it in any way.

    If you have access to that site in some fashion, then you can reset the password using one of the six possible ways listed here:

    Essentially, we can’t get access to that site any more than you can. Asking us for the login and password to a site is like asking Microsoft to give you the password to some random Windows laptop.

    Thank you Esmi and Brandon – much more helpful answers.

    Really appreciate your help. Next job is to find out which company worked/hosts the site I suppose!

    Many thanks.

    I really have to remember to use this analogy. 🙂
