    Hi

    I have seen similar forum items but none that completely answer my questions.

    I know my username to login to my forum ‘HappyBod’ but not my password (I dont remember setting one???)

    I cannot reset password because it says “The email containing the password reset link could not be sent.”.

    I installed the smpt plugin but do not know what settings to put in the file!

    Basically all I want to do is login to my forum admin. Is there anyway to reset my password other than through the password recovery?

    Thanks

  • if you have FTP access you can rename the smpt plugin folder to deactivate it and then try the lost password link again.

    You can open phpmyadmin and manually alterate the database table changing “user_pass” to a well-know value.

    this did not work

    I did this, changing user_pass to “password” (nce and simple) and it still does not like my password. I changed the user_login and that worked, it accepted the new login, but for some reason it doesn’t like new password (or old one).

    In phpMyAdmin, don’t just enter the value of user_pass as it is. Select md5 as function. bbPress will change the password phrase by using phpass when you login.
