I have moved a word press website from one hosting company to another. We had the ability to access the website, to make subtle changes, prior to the move. Now we have no access via the front end. I am able to access the database via the 'phpMyAdmin' interface through our new hosting companies interface. I don't know anything about Word Press. Through my research on lost passwords I managed to poke around the database to attempt to revive the last know user login. I was unsuccessful in locating the login. I have some questions:
Could the new hosting company setup our word press database without logging in? They stated that they have changed nothing.
I don't see, with in the phpMyAdmin interface, a place to create a new ADMIN user account. My research info doesn't seem to match the phpmyadmin interface. I'm hesitant, without further advice, to make any changes.
I wanted to change the password of an existing user (I can't seem to identify if they are an admin). Can I do this w/out causing any problems with in the DB? Can I rename the user account? How can I tell what privileges this user has?
Being I'm a novice, in this area, can someone explain why I'm able to access the inside of this database w/o any user/login through phpmyadmin via my new hosting company? Yet, I'm unable to utilize a previously working user/password.
