I can't log into my blog for some reason, and I tried to reset the password, TNA. Anyone got any suggestions?

You can change the password via phpMyAdmin, but I think I'm right in saying only AzH and gizmo have access to it. If you can get into phpMyAdmin then I can tell you how to change your password.

AzH has other things to deal with right now and Gizmo's not online! Oh dear!

Ok, well tell either of them to do this with your wordpress database in phpMyAdmin: Encrypting the password: Open notepad, and type the following: [php]<?php $password = "YOUR PASSWORD HERE"; echo md5($password); ?>[/php] Replace 'YOUR PASSWORD HERE' with your password, then save as something.php and upload to any part of your website. Then open up the page on your site and you will be presented with the MD5 password hash, the encrypted version of your password. This is what you will change in the database. Changing the password: 1. Load wordpress database. 2. Open table named 'wp_users' or '*_users'. 3. Click 'browse'. 4. Locate the username you want to change the password for, and click the checkbox for that row. Click on the pencil at the bottom of the table with caption 'Change'. 5. Change the string in the 'value' column of the 'user_pass' row to the MD5 hash you generated above. 6. Save, then you're done. EDIT: An alternative way to making a PHP file and uploading it to get your encrypted password is to use a website like this. However you may feel uncomfortable that there is a possibility the website can log your password.
