Can't log in to local WP site. I suspect Captcha box is interfering

    Does anyone know a workaround so I can access my site?

    On localhost? Go to the laragon/wwwr/mysite(whatever you named it)/wp-content/plugins/ folder and find the plugin that creates the captcha for you. You can just rename the folder for that plugin and it will disable it.

    Thank you for your response. I really appreciate it.

    It looks like its not the Captcha at all. Thanks to your response I got rid of that. It just won't recognize my login name and password that I set up with Laragon. Even though I know for 100% certainty that I'm entering it in correctly.

    Any other ideas are appreciated from anyone.

    Thanks again for your help!

    OK, I wrote up instructions and made a quick video showing how to use HeidiSQL to change your WordPress password. If that is the problem then following those steps should get you going. Hope it helps.
