Admin login takes me back to wordpress.com backend (37 posts)

    Hello, I have been going crazy trying to find out how to get to my backend. Here is my issue:

    When I go to my admin URL (http://www.followsydney.com/wp-login.php) and try logging in, it takes me to http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ but it is suppose to take me to my self hosted backend.

    You can look at the login link in the meta widget on my site and see that somehow it is pointing to wordpress.COM instead of my newly installed self-hosted blog.

    Is there a way to fix this issue without having to uninstall and reinstall everything?

    Please help :\

    Did you change Name servers so that the domain name points your host you need log in wordpress.com and change.

    Yes, the domain names are currently pointing to my hosting provider NOT to wordpress.com

    What do I need to change in my wordpress.com account when I log in?

    I looked at your url and seems as if it is pointing you your host now all you need to do set it up and export your data from wordpress.com and import them on your host.

    Really? that will allow my to login to my self hosted install admin backend? I really never thought that would be the issue, I will try this and post my findings, thank you!

    Wait, I just realized...won't this require me to log into my wordpress.com blog, export my my data and then log into my self hosted blog and import it?

    If so that would be the issue, when I try to log into my self hosted blog (http://www.followsydney.com/wp-login.php) it takes me to directly to my wordpress.com blog (http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/).

    Wouldn't that prevent me from accessing my self hosted admin backend (http://followsydney.com/wp-admin/)?

    I'm so lost :(

    When I try to log into my self hosted blog (http://www.followsydney.com/wp-login.php) it takes me to directly to my wordpress.com blog (http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/).

    It DOES NOT take me to http://followsydney.com/wp-admin/

    Instead it takes me to http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    Because this continues to happen I have deleted all of my wordpress files on my server so right now none of those links work but I am going to reinstall wordpress on my server and try again as I cannot figure out what else to do, any other advice would be greatly appreciated :(

    Ok I deleted all of my files on my server and then re-uploaded the download install from wordpress.org but when I go to the install page it says it is already installed.

    I'm out of ideas, the same thing is happening when I go to log into my backend on my self hosted blog:

    When I try to log into my self hosted blog (http://www.followsydney.com/wp-login.php) it takes me to directly to my wordpress.com blog (http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/).

    It DOES NOT take me to http://followsydney.com/wp-admin/

    Instead it takes me to http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    Someone please help! I don't know what else to do :(

    The problem is fixed on your end?

    For some reason on my computer when I try to log into my self hosted blog (http://www.followsydney.com/wp-login.php) it takes me to directly to my wordpress.com blog (http://followsydney.wordpress.com/wp-admin/).

    It seems like it is still doing it....so youre saying on your end http://www.followsydney.com/wp-login.php actually takes you to http://followsydney.com/wp-admin/ ?

    Please help! I am so lost :(

    Try emptying your browser cache. Or use another browser or machine. Your login url works for me.

    @followsydney did you check with your host if there was a redirect set for your domain name.

    I checked your domain name name I find this
    Registrar : GODADDY.COM, INC.
    Referral URL : http://registrar.godaddy.com
    Whois Server : com.whois-servers.net
    Nameservers : ns1.panelboxmanager.com
    ns2.panelboxmanager.com

    are this name servers yours and is right that you registered domain at Go Daddy

    The login page works because it shows up, the problem is when I actually login, it takes me to the wordpress.com admin backend which I don't understand why! But I will try to login on another machine and browser as I will try anything at this point.

    @govpatel
    I do not believe there are any redirects setup and the registrar and server names look correct, but I will double check.

    the problem is when I actually login

    Ah! That wasn't made clear earlier. Check with your hosts that your domain isn't still being redirected to your wordpress.com site.

    Have you checked your urls Go to PhpMyAdmin
    click on your database
    _options table click on first icon browse

    and check your urls it may 1 or 2
    and 37 or 38 see if you have them where you installed wordpress.

    if they are not then click on pencil and edit the url in big box and click Go

    @esmi
    Yea, that is why I feel like going crazy, I did check with my hosting and my domain is not being directed to wordpress.com (I just checked and there are actually no redirects setup at all) and my nameservers point to the panelbox manager I use so it seems correctly setup in that aspect....I just have no clue why (even after clearing my cache and cookies) it would still log me into the wordpress.com backend rather than my self hosted backend setup on my ftp server

    ::sigh:: I just don't know what to do...

    I am doing this project for a friend and I do not think he gave me his PhpMyAdmin login....let me get that information and login then trying what you described.

    Is there anything else I should do once I have edited the URL and click go?

    Do you have any .htaccess files in your domain folder? Is it possible that you mis-typed the wrong url in when installing WordPress?

    @esmi
    I do have a .htaccess file but it is empty (0kb)
    I don't think I mistyped the url but I suppose it is still a possibility...what would I need to do to check that?

    If there is no way to check that, should I just do a fresh install? If that may be the best thing to do, how would I do that? Deleting all the files and trying to reinstall doesn't work since I tried that and it says it is already installed....would that even resolve this issue you think?

    If you are having problems i have a article and video on my website on how to change urls in wordpress

    Thank for that govpatel, I noticed in your video in the beginning when you are logged into your wordpress.com admin you go to SETTINGS > GENERAL you can still edit the WORDPRESS URL and SITE URL

    Is that suppose to still be available to edit? Right now my general settings only shows Site Title, Tagline, Email Address and some time and date settings...is that suppose to be that way?

    I still have to gain access to myPHPadmin, but I though I should ask that because it feels like something is missing.

    This is not on wordpress.com is self hosted wordpress If your wordpress is on wordpress.com then you will not have database options or changing urls you will need check with wordpress.com support or post on their forum

    Yea this is my problem, I cannot access the self hosted admin which is my goal, I will try to follow the rest of the tutorial as I cannot access my self hosted blog because of this redirect issue which always takes me to the wordpress.com admin backend, which is what I do not want. I'll see if any other methods in this tutorial works.

    If I wanted to reinstall and start from scratch would that work? And if so, what else should I do besides deleting and reuploading the install to my ftp? I ask because when I tried that it said it was installed...is there something else you have to do for a complete reset in case these tutorials do not fix my problem?

    ..is there something else you have to do for a complete reset in case these tutorials do not fix my problem?

    To do that you still have get into PhpMyAdmin to delete the tables and run a fresh install
