WordPress Speed Up Service | WordPress Website Maintenance Packages New password för local WP login does not work!, by beejooh Hi! I have been studying several instructions on the web on how to change my password for the ‘admin’ login to my local WP installation (have been using the XAMPP packages). I use phpMyAdmin to change the admin password according to instructions, but it does not work. It seems the string defined there is not in work. But before I tried to change the password I did manage to log in, via a completely different password. This was sabotaged by my changing of password for user ‘admin’ in phpMyAdmin. So – the change of password destroyed the old login, but the new password does not work! Anyone who recognise a similar problem? Is it due to the whole server pack being installed in “localhost”, or what? New password för local WP login does not work!
