reset password

So I forgot the password to this wordpress. I had to alter the mysql table with the md5 has. Well now that I am back in time to keep this updated!!

mysql -u root -p

user wordpress

select * from wp_users

update wp_users SET user_pass=”MD5 HAS” where ID = %id of user

and it works!!


Edit #1 so I check my gmail and and the reset password email went to my spam box. 🙁 Oh well; it was good practice to edit the mysql database
