Hello,
We might come across the situation when we forget the password for our WordPress blog and don’t even remember what email we have used. So is there any plan B to achieve the password. Thank you.

    Just follow the simple steps and get your blog back:The best to do this through the WP database which can be accessed using PhpMyAdmin.

    1. Login to your cPanel, look for PhpMyadmin in the menu or simply type it in the search bar and it will come up in the results below.

    2. Click on the PhpMyadmin logo which will open the databases then click on the Blog database.

    3. Go to the WP Users file which would be the last one in the sidebar on your left.

    4. Open the WP User file and Click on ‘Edit’ as shown in the image below.

    5. Change your password in the user_pass box and press GO.

    6. Your password is now changed and you can access your blog.
