My Wordpress was hacked, how to reset my admin password?

If your wordpress password has been changed to an unknown value, you can always reset it by editing the database directly. For this, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool from the cPanel. Once in phpMyAdmin select the WordPress database. The page will refresh and the database's tables will be displayed on it. Open the SQL tab (look at the top navigation bar). In the text field write the following SQL query: UPDATE `wp_users` SET `user_pass` = MD5( 'new_password_here' ) WHERE `wp_users`.`user_login` = "admin_username"; "new_password_here" - replace this with the new password you wish to use. "admin_username" - replace this with the username the password should be updated for. When you finish editing, click on the GO button to submit the query. If the green message is shown (that query was successfully made), then you will be able to login to your wordpress installation with the newly created password.

Brighten someone's day!
