How to reset my WordPress admin password?
You can reset the WordPress password for any user via the WordPress Toolkit in your cPanel. When you open the tool, click Manage next to the entry for your installation -> Reset Pass. Then select the desired username from the drop down and input the new password.
As an alternative you can reset the password for a user via the WordPress database. To do that, open the phpMyAdmin tool in your cPanel and select the WordPress database from the left side of the page. Then click the SQL tab and type the following query in the text field:
UPDATE `wp_users` SET `user_pass` = MD5('new_password') WHERE `wp_users`.`user_login` = "username";
In the above query replace new_password with the new password for the user and username with the full username of the user.
Once ready, run the query via the Go button.
