If you have forgotten your WordPress password, or wish to reset it for another reason, you can do so in a number of ways.
Request a new password via email
Head to your WordPress administration login page, which will be available at https://[yourdomain]/wp-admin. Replace [yourdomain] for your WordPress website domain.
At the bottom of the page, click the Lost your password? link.
You’ll be asked to enter the username or email address for your account. Once you’ve done so, click Get New Password to continue. WordPress will verify the email address and, if an associated account is found, will send a confirmation email to that address.
Now head to your email inbox, where you should find the confirmation email waiting for you.
Click the link embedded in the email to verify the request and proceed with password reset. You will be taken back to your WordPress website.
To complete the password reset, enter a new password, then click Reset.
Your password has been reset and you can proceed to log in with your new credentials.
Change the password with a database query
Users with advanced technical knowledge can change the WordPress account password using a database query in phpMyAdmin.
Visit the HostPapa Dashboard and, in the top menu, click My cPanel.
Scroll down to the Databases section and select phpMyAdmin.
In the phpMyAdmin sidebar, select your WordPress database. The folder tree will now open – select the wp_users database table (your WordPress database table may use a different prefix; select the table that ends with _users).
Locate your username under user_login in the right pane. Click Edit to change the password.
Delete the contents of the user_pass row and enter your new password.
Now click the Function dropdown menu in the user_pass row and select MD5.
Click Go to change the password. You can log in to your account with the new credentials.
If, for some reason, the above steps fail, please contact HostPapa Support by opening a support ticket from your Dashboard. Follow this link to learn how.
