cannot log in to wp-admin after moving site to new server (3 posts)

    I recently had EZsitemove.com move a wordpress site that a friend created for me to a new server, and put the site under my domain name. Since they moved the site, I cannot log in to the wp-admin, either under the old domain name or the new domain name. When logging in to the /wp-admin under the new domain name I get prompted in a webpage (http://merlinecological.com/wp-login.php) for my login information. I have tried entering my website login information, my wordpress login information, and my friends login information from the old site to no avail. Any suggestions?

    I am very new at this...
    I tried read the page on "moving your site"... I am able to read the php files--so also tried using the the DB_NAME, DB_USER, and DB_PASSWORDs on file. No luck......

    Which error are you receiving when trying to log in? Is it saying that your username/password is incorrect or is there some other type of error being displayed?

    Hi JarretC--it *was* saying incorrect username or password--I just tried it again to verify the error message and it let me login using the old login and password.............thank you :)
