How to Recover Lost WordPress (Localhost) Password

If you design and develop WordPress theme, chances are you’ll have a local (localhost) copy in your machine for testing & debugging and preview purposes. Here’s a common mistake some of us may make – we tend to forget our admin password.





So you’ve forgotten your password, or username, or both. WordPress suggest you use the "Lost your password" function to help recover but email system wasn’t properly setup in your localhost? Here’s how to get you back into the Dashboard quickly.











The Solution


Go into PhpMyAdmin. The URL should be http://localhost/phpmyadmin, but it might vary depending on configurations. Look for the database name on the left sidebar. In our case it’s called “wordpress“.






 
Click “wordpress“ to see its tables. Look for *_users, in our case it’s called wp1_users. Click it and you’ll notice a page change on the right frame. user_login column shows you all usernames you currently have. If you are looking for usernames, your problem is solved. But if you are looking to recover lost password, there is one more thing you’ll need to do.
Click on the pen icon to edit the data for the specific user. Look for “user_pass” field. Select "MD5" for the Function dropdown, and change it’s value to a new password, in our case the new password is call “admin“. Click GO once you are done.











That’s it! You’ve just changed the password for username admin to “admin".

  4. I usually do not leave many responses, but i did some searching and
    wound up here "How to Recover Lost WordPress (Localhost) Password".
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  26. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!
