The immediate solution for reset WordPress password is to change the keyword directly from the MySQL database, the one hosted on the server and which contains all the access data to the site.

The access data to the management panel are usually provided when purchasing the Internet domain, if you do not remember it you can always ask your hosting service. Once in this panel you will need to use the phpMyAdmin administration tool which requires an additional password visible within the db.

The first step to reset the password is to try to access the site from the control panel, and if you are sure that the password is correct you can deprive clicking on Forgot password!
