    Exactly same issue as following topic:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/password-reset-issues?replies=4

    I cannot change any password in the frontend no matter what.
    Even though I try to set passwords NOT used previously, AND I have disabled "do not recycle previous passwords". I get the message:
    "You cannot reuse that password yet. Please choose a different password."

    That message is not coming from WordPress core. Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    Hi Esmi

    Resetting the plugins folder worked for me.

    Hi agian

    So I renamed the plugin folder to "plugin.hold" by FTP as instructed and solved the issue. But how do I change the folder name back? If I do it by FTP it creates an error when i try logging in to my dashboard.
