So you have forgotten your WordPress login? Luckily it's fairly simple to reset the admin password using phpMyAdmin. :)

Navigate to phpMyAdmin.


It will open a new page that looks like this


Click on the wordpress database on the left, mine is called craigprx_wp


Click on the table called wp_users to open it up.


Click the edit button for the user "admin"


Enter a new password in the user_pass field and select MD5 in the drop down box.


Click "Go" and your password will be changed! You can close out of phpMyAdmin and will now be able to log into your WordPress admin panel. :)
