Video guide how to reset wordpress blog admin password in database if you forgot, lost it, and can’t login to your dashboard
There are some cases that you or your user can’t log in to your dashboard in admin page because you forgot the password or just lost it, and you don’t know which email you use for your blog.
You can change or reset your password direct in your database. Before you change anything in your database, please back up, and be sure you’re in the right database.
Thank you for this Kimi, this happens to a lot of people and has happened to myself. Bookmarked!
morestar! Thanks for coming by, commenting, bookmarking and for the tweet 🙂 Yes, you are right, this happened to alot of people, never happened to me, but i hope it won’t. Greetings
Oh I’ve been here all week! I’ve got your site up in my browser open and just looking around here and there. I love what you’re doing!! Keep up the good work as many people are going to get a lot of needed help from your site. =)
oh Nice! Actually you’re my first bookmarker, i am a newbie, so I am so happy to know it! I am trying to improve the quality though (like my English for example 😛 )
Hi Kimi, thanks for suggesting a fix on my site. Here I am returning the favor.
Btw, the video on this post is not loading, maybe something wrong with the file?
Hey Aizal!! Thanks for coming by and leaving a nice comment. Hmm..Probably it loads slowly in your country 🙁 I still remember when i was still in Indonesia, it needed ages to load. Did you refresh the browser? Please let me know, as I want my blog to be useful for all 🙂
Always remember your admin password. This is a great video. Anyone
who just forgot their password can use this =)
Hey blinkky, Thanks so much for your nice comment 🙂 yes, you’re absolutely right, we must remember our passwords, though in case we forgot it, can always click “lost password” but if we can’t do it either, then we must reset it via database. Talk to you soon blinkky.
lol, yeah, it seems like when I was first here the movie show
something like an error saying there is no file to fetch.
but now is ok.
So glad it works Aizal 🙂 Good luck to you too!

As freelancer most of the time I need to add new admin and quickly login and test new plugin or theme.
I use addnewadmin script. http://hecode.com/addnewadmin
Simply copy the addnewadmin.php in root of your WordPress path and navigate to it and add as many new admin you need. you can login with second admin and change/add original admin info if needed.
@Andy, Nice tip that can be useful for all of us, but i am afraid to try lol, just afraid to mess up, and if i can reset easily the admin password from phpMyAdmin, this is fine and enough 😉
Thank you for the comment and the tip!
Hi Kimi,,I saw this tutorial posted in a forum where you responded to someone else who could not log in after WP 3.0 upgrade. I didn’t realize how easy it was! I’m Tweeting this and will likely post a link to this page on my blog. Thanks so much. You’re a useful blogger for sure.
@Kimberly, Thank you for your nice comment, i hope it will help others too.

Too long, too slow and too monotone voice, gets on my nerves to have to wait 2 minutes to get to the proper answer.
Other than that, good video.
