Yes, I am not able to log in. A combination of my new email address and lost password ***** access my Wordpress account.
As I said earlier, I had to change to a new email address and my Wordpress account does not recognize my new address.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Can you please tell me what URL are you using to access your Wordpress account?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
As I stated earlier, URL
This Old Drunk in Recovery
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

That is a site title, not a URL. Are you referring to this URL ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My bad, I am a 75 year old guy and sometimes don't understand.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Not a problem, I understand. Please give me a moment to check this for you

Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

I can help you recover your Wordpress account but I highly recommend that we use our Secure Remote Assistance service so that I can directly assist you in the recovery using your computer while you watch on your screen.

Remote access (Secure Remote Assistance) is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,

I don't think Secure Remote Access is necessary.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

It will be necessary, because the recovery procedures must be done correctly right there on your computer, not on my computer.

I can just give you procedures but it will be critical if you make mistakes in the process the recovery can fail.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not accustomed to being asked to upgrade to additional services.
I will not give anybody access to my computer.
Sorry if that does not meet your company requirements.
And if that causes you a problem - let me know...
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

I understand and respect your decision regarding remote access. But yes, I can still help you with this recovery issues. Please give me a moment as I type the detailed procedures for you to ensure that you will not make a mistake in the process.

I will get back to you with the detailed procedures.

Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for patiently waiting. Here are the steps to recover your account on your WordPress blog:

  1. First, visit this link to directly go to the recovery page:
  2. On that page, for the first box saying "What is your registered email address or username?", if you are sure that it was "*****@******.***", please enter it there.
  3. For the second box, saying "What is the URL of the specific blog you are contacting us about?", enter your blog URL, that is:
  4. For the third box, saying "What email address should we contact you at?", enter your current email address since Wordpress will contact you for the procedures to reset your account password ***** for more verification.
  5. In the Proof of Ownership, there are 3 options. But since your old email is no longer accessible, 2 of them will not be available for you. The other option, if you bought something from Wordpress in the form of upgrades, which I believe you did because you are using your own domain name, locate that information if you can find it in your Paypal transaction history.
  6. In the last box asking for extra details, please tell your story as to how come you lost access of your WordPress account.
  7. When done, click "Recover My Account" button.
  8. After that, please check your email for feedback from the Wordpress team and for further procedures to regain access to your account.

I hope that helped.

Please remember to rate my service positively (3-5 stars/faces) if this helped. Tips are always highly appreciated!

If you need further assistance, please do not rate me negatively with 1 or 2 faces. Instead, please reply to me so that I can help you further.

Thank you!
