I'm having an issue I've not yet come across with WordPress. Upon trying to reset the password, I get the validation email but when clicking it, I get the following error:

Your password reset link appears to be invalid. Please request a new link below.

I've tried this a few times now, but I keep getting the same error.

You can disable caching plugin by delete or rename the plugin folder. If it doesn't work then you can try access the database via phpMyAdmin, then go to users table and click edit.

Input a new password to password field and choose function as MD5 and save.
