I lost access to pennyhero.net sometime between my last post and well… today. I first noticed I was locked out a few months ago, but breaking back in kept getting shoved to the back burner of my to-do list.
Not exactly sure what happened. Basically, my old password stopped working, and for some reason, the built-in password-reset option that sends you a reset email also failed to work. I also don’t have a phpMyAdmin panel, and I don’t remember jack about MySQL queries, so all the standard advice I was reading wasn’t going to work for me.
But, luckily, the FTP instructions on the Resetting Your Password article on wordpress.org worked. I’m so glad they included MANY many options because the jumble of circumstances I was in made lots of the early options impossible for me.
Anyway, the instructions were simple as all get-out once I figured out what theme I have active. (Thank you theme developer Scott Wallick for putting the name of the theme in the footer of all rendered pages so dumb users like me can find it.)
Anyway, glad to be back.
