This really stressing me out! When trying to log back in to Craft CMS today after som time my password wouldn´t work. I have not changed it and when trying to reset the password I´m only getting: "There was a problem sending the password reset email." Is there anyway to find out through eg. my FTP and looking at the backend what the "user/password" is set to and what my reset email is set to? I have not changed any of this, but since I´m locked out now something must have happened..
