This method involves editing and updating the wp_users table values to reset our lost WordPress password. The method is little longer but is also easy enough to follow without a lot of technical knowledge.

  1. Connect to your host and access PHPMyAdmin
  2. Click on your WordPress database (_wpXXXXXX)
  3. Navigate to and click the table wp_users
  4. Edit the row with your WordPress username
  5. Now, in the user_pass field, change the function to MD5 and enter your new password in the Value section
  6. Click “Go” or similar option at the bottom to update the table values
