    Great video! I was having trouble getting logged into my blog under my admin username, I can log in now but it seems that the admin rights no longer exist. Do you have any idea how to fix it? In my phpMyAdmin there is only one username, whereas I know that there were previously three.

    This was so easy to follow, and the phpMyAdmin section was especially helpful. AND YET IT DIDN’T WORK FOR ME. I’ve tried resetting my password through all the WordPress and phpmyadmin routes before, and it never works. Is there something that I might have done to keep my database from recognizing a new passsword?

    Hi there, totally new to all this and losing my mind on a sunny sat avo’! 🙂 I created my blog yest ad\nd started working on it but now it wont let me in. Your tutorial is excellent however my issue is that wordpress does not even recognise my username or email. I wrote it down and have received confirmation that my username is norfolkpine70 but I cannot even get this acknowledged at wordpress login screen to move to reset password stage. I havew no idea what the issue is! Please help….. Cheers 🙂

    @Carol Jones: Are you sure your usename isn’t admin? If you installed through the WP interface, that is usually what it is. Regardless, if you follow the directions in this video to reset your password, then you will see your username in the db table.

    Thank you so much. I have been going in circles for more hours than I would like to admit. Old website http://www.toysonwheels.com is the one I was trying to get into. Have had much mix up since I added a second website to my account and nothing has worked right since.
    Thank you again

    Thousand Thanks!! This was simply superb. My issue was as with so many others it seems – that after requesting a reset of the password, I did receive the link that took me back to a WP page with text saying that I would receive the new password in a new email – but I never received the actual email with the password – despite several attempts – how anoying 🙁 So I found this tutorial on how to reset it through the php panel and it worked great.

    Again, many many thanks for a great how-to guide.
