    Hi,

    I have an old blog which has not been attended to in quite a while and it seems I have forgotten my wp-admin login info.:mad:

    I can get to my cpanel and want to know if there is a way to either recover or change the wp-admin login info through cpanel?

    Thank you for any help you can give.

    What is your WordPress version? 2.7.x or 2.8.x?

    This is because WordPress 2.7.x and 2.8.x applied different password encryption.

    To better understanding, if you use 2.7.x, reset the password with md5 from your wp_users table.

    If you used 2.8.x, refer to the URL as below.
