If you have a WordPress site, there is a pretty big chance you will need to change your password frequently for security reasons. If you change your password quite often, it decreases the chance of someone else knowing the password and take control over it. So it’s always a good practice.
But what if you can’t remember what your last password was? Or your site is hacked? Or any other admin has changed it but didn’t inform you yet? Or you just lost it?
Your password reset link will be emailed to you. Easy, huh? But what if someone who has taken control over your account has changed your email address too?
In that case, you have to update your password from database. Let’s see how you can change your password in phpMyAdmin.
Then click on the “Go” button at bottom-right.
Ta-Da! Your password is updated and now you can login with the new password in your WordPress Dashboard.
