Recovering your wordpress hacked website or lost password in 2 mins

Website Content Management Systems (CMS) for example WordPress and Joomla are  well becoming a common phenomenon with each passing day but what happens when your wordpress website gets hacked and your website is taken over, and the email address is changed, there are various solutions you will find online but the simplest is;

  Access your website control panel from your hosting provider

  Select PhpMyAdmin

control_panel_databases
 Browse to your website database wp_users table

  Select affected user, edit and update email details to your account

wp_users

insert-info-wp_users-table
 Go to your website admin page http://www../<wp-admin page>

  Enter username and select forgot password.

 You will receive an email with your new password

The assumption is that they haven’t hacked your control panel but only your word press website.
