In case you don’t remember the password of your WordPress blog and you also don’t remember the email that you used for creating the account, there is an option to reset it through cPanel. All you have to do is follow a small process that gets over within a short span of time.
Before getting to the steps; note that the best way of doing this is by utilizing the WordPress database that can be accessed through PHPMyAdmin.
The steps are mentioned below:
Step 1 : Login to cPanel and look for PHPMyAdmin in the menu. In case you don’t find it, you use the search bar.
Step 2 : Click on the PHPMyAdmin icon, this will open the databases. Now click on the blog database.
Step 3 : Go to the ‘WP Users’ file present on the sidebar on the left hand side.
Step 4 : Open the ‘WP User’ file and then click on the ‘Edit’ button.
Step 5 : Enter the desired password in the ‘user_pass’ box and then click on ‘Go’.
This completes the process, your password will be reset and you will be able to access your WordPress blog. While following this process, you can also make changes in the ‘Admin’ username if required while executing Step 5 mentioned above. In case you are still using the default username, then it is preferable to change it to a more secure user name. In case you are not able to implement this process successfully, you can seek assistance from your web hosting provider. Using cPanel to reset the password / user name of your WordPress blog is a simple process that can be done within minutes.
