How to Solve Admin Login Problem in WordPress

How to Solve Admin Login Problem in WordPress
  • On August 28, 2011

Now this is one of the most scariest thing that can happen to anyone who is starting a new blog or has an established blog with lots of posts : not to be able to get access to their WordPress dashboard. At first, you might feel getting hacked but there is simply nothing to worry about. For those affected, here is how to solve the admin login problem in wordpress!

Follow the steps below if you are a victim or do not wish to be a victim. Chances are you have all the set up done but its worth checking !

  • Log in into your CPanel.
  • Click phpMyAdmin under the Databases
  • Click on the your domains wordpress file on the left sidebar. It might have a ‘wrdp’ initial at the end 
  • Click on the wp-users


  • Below, find the Edit button and click it

  • You can see a range of options over here. If you see the user_login have ‘admin’ written change it to your old user name with which you were not able to access the wordpress dashboard.
  • Below that, in user_pass add your earlier password or a new one. Under the function table, click the drop down menu and choose MD5.
  • Next, if there is no email address added, do add it in the user_email. When I faced this problem, I wanted to send my password to my email id, but it showed there was no email id registered with my user name.
  • Click Go.
  • Your Done 🙂
Log in again and you are through!
