Through The Automatic Emailer
If you know your username or the email account in your profile, you can use the “lost password” feature of WordPress.
(1) Go to your WordPress Login page (something like http://yoursite.com/wordpress/wp-login.php)
(2) Click on the Lost your password? link
(3) You will be taken to a page to put in some details. Enter your username or the email address on file for that account.
(4) Wait happily as your new password is emailed to you.
(5) Once you get your new password, login and change it to something you can remember on your profile page.
