First of all you will need to know about database of wordpress website. Just login into cpanel then open your wp-config.php file which is located in your root WordPress folder at cpanel. In there you will find the name of your database. In cpanel you will need to access your MySQL database through phpMyAdmin. You will need to select the correct database on the left hand side.

Click on the table “wp_users” in the list of tables and browse table


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You will notice that there are a lot of random characters in the password field. Due to security reasons, WordPress stores the passwords as MD5 Hash instead plain text. Just copy and paste pre-coded secret password to reset password. Once you reset password go to admin panel and you can change password through admin profile.
