Thread: how dyou recover a wordpress password?

  1. how dyou recover a wordpress password?

    how dyou recover a wordpress password when its hacked?
    can't remember what email i've used too.

    its hacked and it displays

    Reported Attack Page!
    This web page at personal-injury-case.info has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

  2. Login to cpanel, go to phpmyadmin and change the email for admin account, then have the new password emailed to you.

  3. i can't seems to see it,
    where in phpmyadmin please?

    Open the WordPress mysql database with phpMyAdmin, move to wp_users then select "Browse". locate your admin account and hit "Edit" then go to the e-mail cell "user_email" and enter a new e-mail address then save.

    You have to delete the index.php page since that is likely to have been changed.

    Then do a database backup.

    Then change your cpanel login password and upload the Wordpress files again.

    And this new password will be needed in your wp-config file.

    After this it may be OK.

    Then make sure you have the latest version of Wordpress installed. But some of your plugins may be the issue here where they don't employ the latest security measures that Wordpress plugin guidelines recommend such as the nonce method of validating access rights to options.

    In my experience, the attackers add some Javascript to the footer of the index.php page

    usually in the mysql databases section of your control panel.

  7. it didn't send any mail even after asking for new password.
    is there anything else i can do?

    will downloading the sql and uploading it to a fresh installed wp a good option?
    i still have to think twice for this though because i think it won't work like what i did to some of my blog.

  8. okay.. so i got a new password now but i still can't login.. why is this happening?
    and everytime i try to acess the page or even trying to login, the Reported Attack Page prompts me.

    There should be an "ignore this warning" option for you from the page where you see that error message. That should take you to the admin panel or similar.
