I have a WP site chugging along but have looked at for more than a year. I forget how to handle it. I now get an email "Login Failure Notification- Captcha Bank" with the following content:

An unsuccessful attempt to login at your website http://myoldsite.com was being made by user admin at 22 Sep 2021 03:21 PM from IP Address 212.102.37.61.

Here is the detailed footprint at the Request :-
Username: admin
Date/Time: 22 Sep 2021 03:21 PM
website: http://myoldsite.com
IP Address: 212.102.37.61
Resource:/wp-login.php
Thanks & Regards

I know, I know !!!..... I promise I will change the username away from "admin"

But how do I get into the work area to do change the username I guess that is the reason for the trials some clown is making. . I used to mess around in there a lot. I built the site etc. But I can't remember a thing. Can you steer me in the right direction. Thanks

You'll typically go to www.youraddress.com/wp-admin to log in. There will be a "forgot password" link there if you need it. If you no longer have access to the email address that was registered, it can be edited in MySQL.
