Add A WordPress Administrator

Once in a while you might find yourself locked out of a WordPress site – usually because you’ve forgotten the password for the admin.  WPCloudDeploy has a tool that you can use to quickly add an admin to the WordPress database.

  • Go to WPCloud Deploy → Applications
  • Click on the site for which this action will apply
  • Click on the TOOLS tab
  • Scroll down to the ADD AN ADMINSTRATOR section
  • Fill in the user name, password and email address for the new admin
  • Click the Add New Admin User button
  • Click the OK option on the confirmation popup

After a while the screen will refresh – if the operation is successful.  If the operation fails, you’ll get a popup message.

You can see a full log of the operation under the SSH LOG screen.
