Finding your database login credentials

In the left pane, click your database name.

Click the ‘wp_users’ table.

You’ll see a list of usernames. Click the Edit link to the left of the username you want to reset the password for.

A page opens with your user’s data.

To the right of ‘user_pass’ you’ll see a box with long string of numbers and letters. Delete everything in this box.

Type in your new password.

From the dropdown next to ‘user_pass’, select MD5.

Finally, click the Go button. You should now be able to log in with the new password.
