These steps use phpMyAdmin and the WordPress database to reset your password.
Step 1: Go to your Website Control Panel and open phpMyAdmin.
Step 2: While in phpMyAdmin, select your WordPress Database and select the wp_users table, (this is the table that holds all of your usernames)
Step 3: Select your username from the list and click the EDIT icon.
Step 4: The WordPress stores users passwords in the encrypted MD5 format, so to change our password we must first encrypt it into a MD5 hash.
If you are on linux you can do a quick command of:
or you can go to md5encryption.com. Enter your new password and hit “Encrypt it!“. Copy the generated MD5 hash code and go back to the EDIT user page which you opened in Step 3 and paste the MD5 hash in the “user_pass” box and click “Go“.
Now, your WordPress Admin Password should be changed.
Go to http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/ and login with your new password.
