Forget password script in php

Hi In this tutorial we are going to see how to reset the forget password using php code.
The Logic I follows to reset forget password is :

1. Enter username or email.
2. If username or email exist it will send a mail to certain user with password reset form link.
3. Else return with no records found.
4. By clicking reset password link user can update new password.
