Problem #1 - Lost password of WordPress admin and can not recover

By default WordPress offers the option to reset the password via the administrator account email. Just click on the "Lost your password" link located below the login form and then provide the email.

But the big problem is when you don't remember the email, or for some reason you don't have access to the page to reset the password.  So if this happens you will have to recover the password another way.

As I said at the beginning of this article, even a robust CMS like WordPress and supported by a huge community is subject to problems. No system is 100% stable, reliable and error-free.

However thanks to the large and qualified Web community we have resources, and tutorials like these, to help us solve most of these possible irregularities.

I suggest you add this article to your favorites for possible queries in the future. I hope you don't need them, but prevention is better than sorry, right? 🙂

Enjoy and share with your friends. They may experience some of these problems.

See you!
