An hour ago I changed the password of my Head Admin user. But after this I was not able to login anymore. So I have tried to reset the password in PHPmyadmin with the md5 encoding and even with this Wordpress hasher http://scriptserver.mainframe8.com/wordpress_password_hasher.php, but it does not work anymore.

I also tried other accounts, but they cannot login as well. The last thing I have tried is to use the new password function in the wordpress login screen, and also this does not work.

Does anyone have an idea what I need to do? Is the emergency reset script of Wordpress an option? https://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

  • Have you tried to using the "Forgot password" in WordPress login? Are you sure, you are modifying in the right database? – Rubatharisan Thirumathyam Oct 22 '15 at 20:38
  • Yes I had tried that function. I solved the problem with changing the password with the FTP option from the Wordpress codex. – Robbert Oct 23 '15 at 9:08

Finally I used the wp_set_password(); function as the emergency reset script documentation of Wordpress explains, which helped me to set a new password for my admin account.
