Ever Forget Your (grr freakin grr) WordPress Admin Password?

by Kelly on October 12, 2008

I did it AGAIN.  I installed a new WordPress blog and forgot to add my password to the database that tracks all of my passwords.  (Yes, shamefully I do this too often.)

Thank goodness for the little WordPress hack made by Village Idiot. It’s called Emergency and it works like a charm.

You download the file here and upload the ‘emergency.php’ file to the same directory that your blog appears in.  Then you go to http://www.yoururl.com/emergency.php and enter your desired admin name and password.  Then (very important) delete the emergency.php file from the server.

That’s it – it’s that simple.
