WordPress Password Recovery

May 22nd, 2007 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Lost your password to your WordPress blog and no longer have access to the email account you set up? Well, there’s a couple of solutions to this – you can either use the Emergency Password Recovery (thanks WeblogToolsCollection) or, if you have got access to the MySQL database, either change the email address contained therein or be really clever and decrypt the stored password.

But the password is encrypted I hear you cry!

Well, there just happens to be a MD5 password lookup site which you could use to decrypt the password!

Hope it helps!

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
