Advanced Methods – Not Recommended

If none of these methods work, you can try the following the official manual reset options on the WordPress.org website.

Before trying any of the advanced methods, please keep the following in mind:

  • If you’re unsure how to or uncomfortable completing these steps, we recommend considering a professional web developer to make these changes.
  • Changes to your website are generally not within our support scope, so our Technical Support team may not be able to provide full support.
