The answer is

This is one of the proposed solutions found in the article Jacob mentioned, and it worked great as a manual way to change the password without having to use the email reset.

  2. Visit yoursite.com/wp-login.php?action=rp&key=abc123&login=yourusername
  3. You will be prompted to enter a new password.
