Having said that, let’s see how you can easily reset a Word Press password from php My Admin.If you don’t want to watch the video tutorial, then you can continue reading the text version below: First you need to login to the c Panel dashboard of your Word Press hosting account.Next, you need to click on the php My Admin icon under the database section.This will launch the php My Admin app where you need to select your Word Press database.Clicking on it takes you to password reset page where you can enter your username or email address to reset the password.
However, if you don’t have access to the email address, or your Word Press site fails to send an email, then you will not be able to reset your password.
In such a situation, you will need to reset your Word Press password directly in the database.
The easiest way to do that is by using php My Admin.
However, Word Press still recognizes MD5 to provide backward compatibility.
As soon as you login using a password string stored as a MD5 hash, Word Press recognizes it and changes it using the newer encryption algorithms.
Note: Table names in your Word Press database may have a different table prefix than the one we are showing in our screenshot.
