    just followed the instructions in https://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory: changed the wp url, moved wp-*, opened server/website/wordpress/wp-login.php
    and got

    The password you entered for the username admin is incorrect.

    so now what? do i have 2 manually fix the db?

    That error message is unlikely to have anything to do with the site move unless you are using a login plugin.

    no, the problem occurred after i changed the wp url & moved the wp install. i did not change the admin passwd, so the the login problem is entirely due to the change.

    how do i start all over?

    You would have to reverse all of your changes. But a site move would not result in an "incorrect password" message. Even a bungled site move.

  7. WARNING: Multisite Users - Please Read
    This process is not applicable to and does not work if you have enabled MultiSite.

    You can't do that YET in Multisite.

    We have that warning on the page you linked to. The error you're seeing is correct, because (surprise) it doesn't work :) We know.

    It will be usable in WP 3.5.

    thanx, but i still can't access the website, it times out...

  10. Bobby would be the right way about it.

    Drop the tables, wipe the files, reinstall :/
