One fine morning you wake up, check your site and see that your site has been hacked or anything, you immediately want to change your password but then you notice that you are unable to login the admin panel of your site through the login, moreover you are not even able to reset your site’s password through e-mail. At this moment, you might lose your nerve for a while but no need to worry, we have a solution to it now.
In such situations, phpMyAdmin might help you in overcoming from such problems. All WordPress blogs are accessed through a database and every database can be controlled and managed by phpMyAdmin. Hence, just by accessing phpMyAdmin we can easily change the WordPress password.
You can follow the below mentioned steps for assistance:
DB_NAME define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name’);
After this, you need to click on the edit button ( pencil icon) to change the password.
Then, you would be able to see a tabular field.
The next step you need to do is edit the user_pass field value. Because of some security reasons, WordPress puts the passwords MD5 hash instead of plain text. Hence, you would see a lot of random characters in the password field.
