What a PITA!


I got the seemingly ever-present message to upgrade WP, so I stupidly did. Then I could no longer log in!?! It kept saying my password was incorrect. I could not send myself a password reset because the mail server isn’t configured. Great.

After much searching and a lot of wasted time, I finally was able to manually change my password. The following pages came in very handy:

The MySQL Workbench tools were also invaluable, as it was much easier to download/install than to setup phpMyAdmin.

I am really hoping that this was in fact related to the install. I’d hate to think that somehow my blog login was compromised. It seems a bit too coincidental though, so it most likely was something upgrade-related. I’ll have to check out my other accounts though…
