    Can't email forgotten password in localhost Wordpress

    Hello.

    I'd be grateful for some advice.

    I've downloaded Wordpress on localhost on my pc.

    However, I can't remember my password and when I try to email it, I get this message...

    The e-mail could not be sent.
    Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function..

    Can anyone tell me what i should do?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    Perhaps you should contact your host - it's only them who can enable mail() function.

    Or, do you host the wordpress yourself? In this case, you have to work on to enable the mail() function - perhaps in your php.ini ?

    Cheers!

    I think you better contact your host for further help and ask him to enable the mail function for you so that you can be able to retrieve your details.
