How can I recover my wp admin username thru terminal console (I forgot both, but I can recover password once I know the username).

I am using terminal console because I’m not able to open PhpMyAdmin in my browser, though my WP site is working ok. Can you guide for both of the cases?

Hi @jpippo,

With openlitespeed wordpress image, you can try method:

  1. resend the password, be aware that mail probably in the spam
  2. get mysql wordpress user password from cat ~/.db_password then you can follow above method to reset it
  3. Relaunch again since it won’t cause you more than 5 mins to do so.

Best, Eric
