Lost login and password - What can I do?

    I have lost my login details for one of my WP blogs and when I click "Lost your password?" and enter my email it says "ERROR: There is no user registered with that email address."
    SEMrush
    I wonder what can I do now? I don't want to loose the content of the site and I need to write a new post.

    Do you host it with a hosting program, or is it one of those free ones?

    It is a self-hosted wordpress.org blog. Not wordpress.com.

    I have a video tutorial easy to follow if you need one, how to reset your pass in the database, but backup database first is recommended, good luck.

    I don't know if reseting my password through phpMyAdmin would work, as I even don't know what my username is, nor the email. Would it work? Can I also reset my email?

    I think there is only way right now. Make a new database and upload backup then put username and password of new database in wp-config.php file.

    Its not easy. you may hire some one for this work
