How to Reset a Forgotten Password in WordPress from phpMyAdmin
Well hello and welcome again, this is Mosam again…!! Recently my site-mate Charmie wrote tutorial on Android with Phonegap, did you just check that out? No? Then you may refer these links:
So friends today I’m posting for how you can reset your WordPress password from phpMyAdmin. This technique is not particularly a technique for a reset, but it does allow you to totally reset your password. It just requires a few additional actions, and a little basic knowledge of MySQL. This guide in particular will be using the MySQL from our hosting cPanel.
Step 1: Login into your cPanel
Step 2: Search to the symbol for phpMyAdmin and just click.
Step 3: Simply select the database table that connect with your WordPress website. In fact, if you do not know what database is connect with your website don’t worry, open the wp-config.php to find out.
Step 4: Search for wp_users and just click to open this database table.
Step 5: Search for the your username and click to edit button for edit your password
Step 6: As you can see in this image, there is a position to put a security password. When you first see, it, it will look like a lot of alphanumeric character are in that area. eliminate those characters and put your security password you want. The different characters are there because WordPress only identifies security passwords by means of MD5 security. You will want to put your own security password in the writing area and then choose MD5 in the drop down menu.
Once you have done this 3 steps , simply select the button that says GO and your security password has been totally reset.
So guys and girls, its as simple as that and you are also just a few steps away from trying this tutorial on your own. In case you feel to harass me you can freely ask me your doubts. 🙂
