I have lost my password and when I do a reset it does not send it to my Email. I did a reset for the forum password but it does not work in my site. My site is barmannsbar.com
Thank you.

I guess you did not configure your web server to send email...

That won't work. Diffrerent sites. Different passwords.

Your best option is to update the password directly in the database. I presume you can access your database - e.g. using phpMyAdmin or some other control panel.

Find your account in the table wt_user and set the password entry to "$1$OhXPSaXo$dPoqIjEM5H18dibHdfVJI0". This is the encrypted version of "password". You'll then be able to log in and change it.

Could you please update that again for me. I am the only one that uses the computer and I have started to write down my passwords because of my age. I tried to do what you suggested a while back by going to the wt_users but I could not open the database. I will write every thing down this time so I will try not to bother you again. I have 3 obits to enter and am trying to find a younger relative to carry this on. The younger generation does not seem to know the importance of keeping a genealogy record.
