Multiple usernames or passwords

  • Author

    I have two websites set up using WordPress: and I seem to have got my usernames and passwords mixed up. I can access the dashboard of the former site OK (using the username and password I have always used), but when I try to manage the other site I get a notification telling me I don’t have authority to access the dashboard. The two sites were set up quite independently and I previously accessed them via independent usernames and passwords. I think I may have caused the problem by trying to login to administer the second site using my email address rather than a user name, forgetting the password and creating a new one. Are you able to help? Thanks
