I think I forgot my wordpress log in password.
Even I clicked this : get new password button, nothing is being sent to my gmail account.

How am I gonna solve this issue?


#2

just check your “spam” folder. maybe your response email for some reason landed there. :slight_smile:


#3

nah it is not in it. my spam folder only has less than 20 emails.


#4

do you have any sensitive data on the old wordpress account?


#5

no not really. (20 characters)


#6

the why not try to create a new account?


#7

I hosted my website on digital ocean, does it have anything to do with my wordpress account?
I am kind of lost …


#8

reinstall or update db with phpmyadmin


#9

how do I do that? (pardon me if this is a simple google, please give me a more detailed answer)

I see. Thanks I will try to do it and get back to you later!


#12

For you is best way the phpmyadmin or make a php file copy code from here: https://codex.wordpress.org/User:MichaelH/Orphaned_Plugins_needing_Adoption/Emergency

and run it.

I see thanks! (20 character)

okay… bare with me here cos I literally forgot whether I have a local folder or not…
I built this site a month ago and I only remember building it online using a free wordpress theme.
maybe I should just delete my droplet on digital ocean and start from scratch?
I only have one article on it and I have saved in locally.

This way just you need a reinstall. And select wordpresss in install. That much faster.

I see. Thanks! (20 character)
