To Manually Reset the Admin Password in WordPress

General — Jeff Eske on June 12, 2009 at 11:27 am

In case of Brain-fart, use the instructions below to reset the admin password in WordPress.  It needs to be done through phpMyAdmin, MySQL query browser, or some such place that allows you to run SQL commands.

update wordpress.wp_users
set user_pass = MD5(‘new_password’)
where user_login = ‘admin’
